July, 2013: KIC members Paul McEuen, David Muller, and Jiwoong Park have imaged solitons in bilayer graphene with atomic resolution. These solitons are predicted to act as ‘electrical highways’ allowing electrons to shoot from one end of the graphene sheet to the other.  Their work, published online in the June 24 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is also featured in the Cornell Chronicle (July 11).
