The Woodburytype is a 19th century photomechanical printing method, producing high-quality continuous-tone images that use a suspension of carbon black in gelatine as a relief print, in which the variation in height of the print produces the grayscal...

The optical properties of the Woodburytype - An alternative printing technique based on a gelatine/pigment matrix (2019)
Conference Proceeding

The Woodburytype is a 19th century photomechanical technique, producing high-quality continuous-tone prints that use a mixture of pigment and gelatine as a relief print, in which the variation in height of the print produces the tone and contrast. We... Read More about The optical properties of the Woodburytype - An alternative printing technique based on a gelatine/pigment matrix.

And now for something completely different: Woodburytype (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Klein, S., & Leech, D. (2019, April). And now for something completely different: Woodburytype. Presented at British Liquid Crystal Society 2019 Annual Conference

Woodburytype, invented by Walter B. Woodbury and patented in 1863, was the first commercially successful mechanical printing process for the permanent reproduction of photographic quality pictures and today is still unsurpassed in producing continuou...

Valley-polarized tunneling currents in bilayer graphene tunneling transistors (2019)
Journal Article
Thompson, J. J. P., Leech, D. J., & Mucha-Kruczyński, M. (2019). Valley-polarized tunneling currents in bilayer graphene tunneling transistors. Physical Review B, 99(8), https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevB.99.085420

We study theoretically the electron current across a monolayer graphene/hexagonal boron nitride/bilayer graphene tunneling junction in an external magnetic field perpendicular to the layers. We show that change in effective tunneling barrier width fo... Read More about Valley-polarized tunneling currents in bilayer graphene tunneling transistors.
