Okay, so I am borrowing heavily from one of my favorite movies American Beauty ... where the supporting character Ricky is in awe of wind playing with a plastic bag for a full ten minutes ... but it's true. Beauty is all around us ... if you know where to look.
You can see it clearly in this photo taken be Lee Aspitarte as he delves into the physics of a new class of 2D graphene-like semiconductors called transition metal dichalcogenides for the Minot Research Group at Oregon State University. Shown is an exfoliation grid made from a layer of gold on top of a silicon wafer.
Take a minute and enjoy this beautiful picture taken at micro-scale. For reference, the dots are 2-micron contacts and the width of a single human hair would span across four of the dots.
