Graphene Nanoribbon Structure

Caption: Graphene nanoribbons are narrow sheets of carbon atoms only one layer thick. Their width, and the angles at which the edges are cut, produce a variety of electronic states, which have been studied with precision for the first time using scanning tunneling microscopy and scanning tunneling spectroscopy.
