Beyond Graphene: More Kinds of Nano-sheets

Graphene, a sheet of graphite one atom thick, is no longer the only planar nano-material.

A novel way of splitting materials into sheets just one atom thick could lead to new electronic and energy storage technologies, scientists said Thursday. …

The new method is simple, cheap, fast, and could be scaled up to work on an industrial scale, the scientists said in a report of their work published in the journal Science. …

“Of the many possible applications of these new nanosheets, perhaps the most important are as thermoelectric materials,”
