'Artificial atom' created in graphene

Electrons reveal their quantum properties when they are confined to small spaces. Scientists from TU Wien (Vienna), Aachen and Manchester have created tiny quantum dots in Graphene.

The high symmetry of the graphene lattice allows for four different quantum states. This opens up new pathways for quant…
