Thus we will be able to mask the substrate to provide separate domains which then determine the magnetic properties of the cobalt on top of the Graphene. Step by step we are working up profoundly complex 3D structures that can handle complex tasks.
Remember the huge jewel given to Princess Leia in Starwars. I suspect that we will make an even better tool. Graphene is turning out to be tyhe actual keystone tool for fabrication of electronic devices of the future.
Its flexibility in terms of basic properties is already well proven. What we are now seeing is unexpected behavior.
