Ultrathin Boron Nitride Sheets IB-2788

Alex Zettl of Berkeley Lab has developed a technology to produce low layer number sheets, including monolayer sheets, of hexagonal boron nitride (BN) or boron carbon nitrogen (BxCyNz). The ultrathin sheets are mechanically sound due to strong chemical bonds in layered BN. The ability to place the...
