Evolving friction of graphene

28.11.2016 Aydar Akchurin 637 Views

Two-dimensional materials are defined as substances with the thickness less than few nanometers. While there may exist around 500 of various 2D materials, the first discovered 2D material is graphene. Graphene is flexible, transparent, possesses […]
