Scanning Nanoribbon (image) DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Caption A scanning tunneling microscope determines the topography and orientation of the graphene nanoribbons on the atomic scale. In spectroscopy mode, it determines changes in the density of electronic states, from the nanoribbon's interior to its edge.
