Your research: Kaitlyn Parsons studies atomically precise graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) on semiconducting substrates using ultra-high vacuum scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and spectroscopy. The graphene nanoribbons are dry contact transferred in ultra-high vacuum. STM imaging confirms unique electronic features of the GNRs.
