Holey graphene from the bottom up highlighted in Nano Today

The journal just published a news item detailing the advance led by ICN2 researchers from the ICN2 Atomic Manipulation and Spectroscopy Group in the context of a a national research collaboration. The results were originally published in Sciece with Dr César Moreno and ICREA Prof. Aitor Mugarza as first and last authors, respectively.

ICN2 researchers recently led a national research collaboration that made uniformly nanoporous graphene a practicable reality. Nano Today, a unique mixture of peer-reviewed articles, the latest research news, and information on key developments, published a detailed news item about a work published last April in Science, with Dr César Moreno and ICREA Prof. Aitor Mugarza as first and last authors, respectively, both from the ICN2 Atomic Manipulation and Spectroscopy Group. The article describes how pores not only transform the semi-metallic material into a semiconductor but also turn graphene from the most impermeable of single-layer thin films into the most efficient filter. The ICN2 Physics and Engineering of Nanodevices Group, led by ICREA Prof. Sergio O. Valenzuela, was also involved in the research.
