The Achilles tendon of graphene quantum Hall effect

The team of B. Hackens in the NAPS/IMCN laboratory at UCLouvain, in collaboration with the group of C. Stampfer in RWTH Aachen, revealed a new detailed microscopic picture of the “quantum Hall effect” in graphene. This breakthrough was made possible thanks to experimental data obtained by...
