Description: This 3-D rendering of a graphene hole imaged on Berkeley Lab's Transmission Electron Aberration-corrected Microscope (TEAM) 0.5 shows that the carbon atoms along the edge assume either a zigzag or an armchair configuration. The zigzag is the more stable configuration and shows promise for future spintronic technologies.
Keywords: graphene • hole • zigzag • spintronic technology • TEAM microscope • transmission electron aberration-corrected microscope
