Conductivity at the edges of graphene bilayers

Blood-sucking insects like mosquitoes are among the most dangerous disease transmitters in the world. Vector-borne diseases, which include malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever and others, cause more than 700,000 deaths worldwide each year, accounting for more than 17% of all infectious disease globally.1 According to the World Health Organization, malaria alone, which is transmitted by the Anopheles mosquito, kills 400,000 people annually, most of them children under 5.2 In the U.S., mosquito bites can transmit viruses like West Nile, St. Louis encephalitis and La Crosse encephalitis, which in rare cases can be severe or deadly.3 Even in the best-case scenario — a mosquito bites you but no disease is transmitted — the bite can be painful and itchy, causing varying levels of annoyance depending on the severity of itching and the number of bites. Mosquito bite prevention is therefore a key topic among researchers, and a nanomaterial known as graphene is emerging as a potential new player. However, as with most n
