Graphene Layers

Twinning defects in Bilayer (flower) and Trilayer (hexagon, bottom) Oriented graphene sheets are revealed by contrast changes in this series of Warhal-inspired Dark-Field TEM images. Strain induced Moire patterns (hexagon, top) are caused by a small lattice mismatch in the first and third layers. The layers are colored by their thickness, and each of the six images correspond to a different diffraction peak, providing unique information regarding the nature of these defects.
