The capillary-bridge bubbles that hold sand castles together and help the feet of tree frogs adhere to tree bark are being employed in the manufacturing of graphene, growing the carbon material on top of a silicon wafer, according to a research paper published last week in the journal Nature. The method could provide an alternative to growing graphene on copper.
