Chemists synthesize narrow ribbons of graphene using only light and heat

The nanoribbons are extremely narrow strips of graphene, the width of just a few carbon atoms. They’re useful because they possess a bandgap, which means that electrons must be “pushed” to flow through them to create electrical current, said Yves Rubin, a professor of chemistry in the UCLA CollegeĀ …
