few years ago I heard Prof. Dresselhaus on occasion of her public lecture in Tokyo, was amazed in the vitality, of course that besides of her I would say the carbonic path in science. Now that seems more clear why - she is just enjoying the discoveries, congratulations!
Let's print circuits on these. What do you think, "Leaf boards"? Has a nice ring to it, yea?

browse their NanoLett. 2012, 12, 2021, the desired cone anisotropy for the prospective formation of nano-circuitry may indeed be enhanced for orienting the film in the growth process, that however could posing a self-standing experimental challenge, remember we are in the nano-limits here;anyway, many interesting features, I would single out adjusting over the effective fermionic masses, both for almost mass-less and massive fermions coming off the different zone points so and over the carrier density with the film thickness;quite many knobs to possibly turn, which is the beauty of it, as far as I understood what’s indicated here is the hope of a comparative simplicity of the binary form of this material; you say nano-printing/patterning over it ? the sandwich with the proximity effect to its one side and why not the field effect carrier density tuning to the other ?, how to introduce the electron correlations for the sake of say the superconducting nano-circuitry device ? all maybe, exactly as they say, but remember the initial idea is the easy part ..
no problem, thanks for returning with the reference paper you ask about. My first advice however is try to address your specific questions with the authors of that preceding communication. This would be more informative plus may turn beneficial for you simply for involving in discussion, specifically if your major is/will be in physics/materials science/materials engineering. For me the reference you sent just describes the electron beam lithography processing for the channel etching of the graphen sheets and I work neither with any of these materials nor the technique. Asking me for example for involved energetics of such processing in a cross-section of different materials I would not answer. What I would single out there is expressing for technical difficulty in achieving the etched paths of sufficient uniformity for the gap engineering. Interesting seems an underlining idea of the gap engineering with getting down to a quasi 1D paths plus orienting such on electronically anisotropic active substrate - marvels of materials science/engineering. Note also the MIT has launched a handful of online courses, possibly including on the nano-electronics processing/ materials science, heard they intend to grow on such a free offering.
Not that I wasn't in Boston, but most I remember is the city and their National Galery of Art, as then they had there one my favourite Vermeer paintings. So, talk to the authors.
