Inferring information about a 3D electronic structure from a 2D measurement.

For some shapes, we can relatively easily infer what their 3D shape will have been from only looking at their 2D projections – at least for some directions. Read in Luke’s new paper in Phys. Rev. B to find out how this works for Quasiparticle Interference Imaging in cases where we probe a three-dimensional electronic structure at the surface of the material.
