PhD student Babak Anasori’s image has made it to the front cover of Advanced Materials (Volume 23, Issue 37). The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image shows graphene-like 2D crystals of Ti3C2 called MXene. The full article, published in that issue, describes the exfoliation of the MAX phase Ti3AlC2 by etching the aluminum out in HF.
