Some materials can separate charge under mechanical action (stress or strain). Such a phenomenon is called the piezoelectric effect. ” Regarding the mechanism of the piezoelectric effect, Voigt pointed out as early as 1894 that this effect can only be found in crystals formed by the noncentrosymmetric lattice. So far, research of micro-theory on the piezoelectric effect still faces many problems, mainly with inconsistencies with experimental results. Yet researchers have made it clear that the piezoelectric effect is essentially caused by the polarization of crystal medium.
These technologies are also essential for the future application of single-atom manipulation and the surface processing of structures for atomic-scale devices. The main application of the atomic manipulation technique is in creating nano- or atomic-level structures. One such application is in high-density information storage. IBM scientists have demonstrated the ability in the aforementioned movement of xenon atoms, which can be directly used in the production of atomic-scale high-density memory.
Schematically, the structure of graphene is formed by layers of graphite atoms being vertically torn like paper. Graphene has become a model system in condensed matter physics, because its charged particles can move at relativistic speeds, as if they do not have any mass. This feature has led to some peculiar electronic transport properties. For example, in a graphene layer sandwiched between two superconducting electrodes, a superconducting current can flow at low temperatures, loaded by either electrons or the holes, depending on the gate voltage and also the charge density in the graphene layers.
