Getting a sense of atomically thin materials

Two-dimensional materials such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides provide a powerful platform for optoelectronic applications. As the materials get thinner, however, characterizing the electronic properties can present an experimental challenge. Lovchinsky et al. demonstrate that atomic-like impurities in diamond can be used to probe the properties of 2D materials by nanometer-scale nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy. Coherent manipulation of shallow nitrogen-vacancy color centers enabled probing of nanoscale ensembles down to several tens of nuclear spins in atomically thin hexagonal boron nitride.
