It was hard to understand how a graphene sheet - a
featureless, flat sheet of carbon atoms - lying on an equally
featureless iridium surface, somehow converted itself into a kind of
muffin tin that...

Researchers analyzing the assembly of graphene (sheets of carbon only one
atom thick) on a surface of iridium have found that the sheets grow by first
forming tiny carbon domes. The discovery...
