The Two atom Thick Glass


Researchers accidentally discovered the world’s thinnest sheet of glass, just two atoms thick.
Their chance finding — now in the 2014 edition of the
Guinness Book of World Records — gives scientists a
glimpse into the puzzling properties of glass, which behaves like both a
solid and a liquid.
Using an electron microscope, the researchers inspected some “muck” on
the graphene, finding that it was essentially a 2D sheet of common
glass, made up of silicon and oxygen atoms.
The researchers’ observations were first described in January 2012 in the journal Nano Letters. They say their microscopic photos of the ultra-thin pane may help to solve some long-standing uncertainties about glass, which is not exactly a liquid or a solid.
