See the latest animation about the use of ultrathin single-atom-thick materials in quantum science, only available at Festival of the Mind.

Arts Council EnglandThis exhibit is part of the Futurecade series of events. Futurecade is generously supported using public funding by Arts Council England.


The animations are produced in a joint effort by scientists from the LDSD Semiconductor Research group (also on YouTube) and motion designer Gareth Jones, coordinated by Dr Maksym Sich.
