Almost size zero
Researchers have found a way to split layered materials into sheets just a single atom thick, the technique could lead to a novel way to make graphene and related materials for future electronic and energy storage technologies. Boron nitride, molybdenum disulfide and bismuth telluride are all amenable to the approach and all have intriguing electronic and physical properties. The materials could be made into devices that generate electricity from waste heat lost from power plants, which lose between 50 and 70 percent of the energy they produce in waste heat. Efficient thermoelectric devices would allow waste heat to be recycled efficiently.
