New ultra-thin technology developed

Science journal Nature today released the findings of a team of researchers from the University of Manchester and the Max-Planck Institute in Germany. The physicists have successfully created a membrane only one atom thick that is capable of existing in a free state.

The researchers believe the membranes could be used like sieves to filter light gases through an atomic mesh or to make miniature electro-mechanical switches. They could also be used as non-obscuring support for electron microscopy to study molecules, allowing for the quick analysis of atomic structures of bio-active molecules in medical research
