Layers of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a naturally occurring compound in rocks, of just a single atom in thickness may be better than graphene for electronics applications, according to new research from the University of Warsaw.
Light can trigger coordinated, wavelike motions of atoms in atom-thin layers of crystal, scientists have shown.

With a vast range of unique properties, graphene has proven itself a wonder material. Among these properties, graphene's strange love affair with water has remained a mystery until now.
Using electrons more like photons could provide the foundation for a new type of electronic device that would capitalize on the ability of graphene to carry electrons with almost no resistance even at room temperature – a property known as ballistic transport.
Perfect sheets of diamond a few atoms thick appear to be possible even without the big squeeze that makes natural gems.
DUBLIN, February 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/z9rl7h/diamond_materials) has announced the addition of the "Diamond
Corundum is the crystalline form of aluminium oxide and one of the rock-forming minerals. Corundum is naturally clear, but can have different colors when impurities are added. Transparent specimens are used as gems, called ruby if red, while all other colors are called sapphire. The word corundum comes from the Hindi kurand. The oxygen atoms in corundum are arranged in a hexagonal close-packing, with the smaller aluminium atoms occupying 2/3 of the octahedral gaps. The coordination of the...
