This new ability is opening up the possibility of studying the ‘imperfections’ in the potentially revolutionary material, graphene , or in “plotting where electrons go during chemical reactions.” The research and images were just published in the journal Science . The research team, which included Spanish and French contributors, got the images by using a “variant of a technique called atomic force microscopy, or AFM.” “AFM uses a tiny metal tip passed over a surface, whose even tinier deflections are measured as the tip is scanned t...
