Graphene, and we swear we’re not dead

Yes, this place appears entirely forgotten about. We do think about it sometimes, though, we promise.

A friend sent me this link a few days ago and I just can’t get over how cool this is. Materials are my thing to begin with, but the idea that such a simple process like stretching would create pseudo-magnetic fields like this paper reports is just wild.  Electronic behavior like this that makes the control of electrons easier obviously has a ton of implications for electronics, but I’m honestly more blown away by the sheer absurdity of this – so simple, and discovered by accident.  The things we don’t know are really quite incredible.
