Layers and Meaning: An Introduction

Robert Sacci

"What could we do with layered structures with just the right layers? What would the properties of materials be if we could really arrange the atoms the way we want them?" Richard Feynman asked this question nearly 60 years ago, see how researchers at the Energy Frontier Researchers are answering these questions...
