Joe Castello and Aly Asani — UC Berkeley students who work in the Crommie Lab —research scanning tunneling microscopy, or STM, on 2-dimentional materials. The pair is particularly interested in studying the electric properties of graphene nano ribbons, which are ribbons of atomically thin carbon.
This photo essay is composed of a tour of Bridge Hall, where the Crommie Group conducts research. During this visit, undergraduate researchers Asani and Costello shared their developments within the physics field. Birge Hall is one of the many campus buildings housing researchers on the forefront of pioneering work.
