Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have made the first direct observations of a one dimensional boundary separating two different, atom-thin materials, enabling studies of long-theorised phenomena at these interfaces.

Theorists have predicted the existence of intriguing properties at one dimensional (1D) boundaries between two crystalline components, but experimental verification has eluded researchers because atomically precise 1D interfaces are difficult to construct.
