We report on the narrowest possible armchair graphene nanoribbon belonging to the metallic family (five carbon atoms wide) and the evolution of the electronic bandgap and orbital structure of GNR segments as a function of their length using low-temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy and density-functional theory calculations. The paper is out in Nature Communications.
