Electrons in graphene corralled using new quantum tool

Researchers have succeeded in creating a new 'whispering gallery' effect for electrons in a sheet of graphene - making it possible to precisely control a region that reflects electrons within the material. They say the accomplishment could provide a basic building block for new kinds of electronic lenses, as well as quantum-based devices that combine electronics and optics.
