Stickier than expected: Hydrogen binds to graphene in 10 femtoseconds

The hydrogen atom (blue) hits the graphene (black) and forms an ultra-fast bond with a carbon atom (red). The high energy of the impinging hydrogen atom is first absorbed by neighboring carbon atoms (orange and yellow) and then passed on to the graphene surface in form of a sound wave. Image: MPI
