  1. 3 min. Research Talk: Identifying the Dimensionality of Crystal Structures

    12 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Franco Vera

    Today, researchers worldwide have identified over 100,000 distinct bulk materials. The underlying dimensionality of these materials is not always clear however, and as such researchers have sought to identify stable, lower dimensional materials derived from the bulk parent structures. A team of...
