“With today’s methods, you have to shine the laser beam through a special gas jet or through a crystal that has to be grown with great care at ultra-cold temperatures,” said Yong Sing You, a postdoctoral researcher at PULSE and lead author of the study. “But this is exciting because you can use everyday glass, which is cheap and easily available, at room temperature. If you were to put your eyeglasses into the experiment, it would still work, and it would not even damage the glasses.”
The easiest way to take graphene into the third dimension? Use a laser on it! Cancer detection possible?
In observing the laser-induced current, researchers found the electrons follow the logic of a quantum system, taking not one but two paths between their initial and excited states. The electrons form a two-state system, traveling simultaneously along two paths to the same end.
