A team of scientists from Rice University, Texas, USA, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, Bruker Nano Surfaces, Minnesota, USA and Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar, Gujarat have developed a new way to exfoliate a 2 dimensional metal sheet, few layers o even up to a single layer of atoms thick. The novel method, the scientists claim, could be used to make metal sheets of low-melting pure metals and alloys.
