Disappearing Carbon Circuits on Graphene Could Have Security, Biomedical Uses
Using carbon atoms deposited on graphene with a focused electron beam process, Fedorov and collaborators have demonstrated a technique for creating dynamic patterns on graphene surfaces. The patterns could be used to make reconfigurable electronic circuits, which evolve over a period of hours before ultimately disappearing into a new electronic state of the graphene. Graphene is also made up of carbon atoms, but in a highly-ordered form.

MSU computation conference attracts national audience
Frontiers in Computing and Data Science, a two-day conference recently hosted by the MSU Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering, drew 115 individuals from universities, national labs and industries across the country.
