Cover: Nanotechnology 26 – August 2017

The cover is an EDX image of the patterned SiC substrate showing Ga contamination. In this paper we demonstrate that combining a protective silicon layer with FIB patterning implemented prior to graphene growth can significantly reduce the damage associated with FIB milling. Using this approach, we successfully achieved graphene growth…

Inverse photoemission funded by ARC

Dr Jennifer MacLeod has been awarded a DECRA project funded with $360,000 to build an inverse photoemission spectrometer. The aim of the project is to elucidate the electronic properties of molecular materials. In tandem with traditional photoemission, the spectrometer will measure the electronic structure of small molecules for organic…
