Meet gallenene: Gallium joins graphene in the second dimension

Graphene hogs all the headlines about two-dimensional materials, but it might just be the beginning. Researchers at Rice University and the Indian Institute of Science have now isolated a 2D form of the soft metal gallium, dubbed “gallenene,” which could make for efficient, thin metal contacts in electronic devices…
