Hexbyte Glen Cove Scientists stabilize atomically thin boron for practical use

In this schematic, the teal balls represent boron and the red balls are hydrogen. Credit: Northwestern University Northwestern University researchers have, for the first time, created borophane—atomically thin boron that is stable at standard temperatures and air pressures. Researchers have long been excited by the promise of borophene—a single-atom-thick sheet of boron—because of its...
