Borophene, graphene’s lesser-known cousin, advances as 2D materials platform

By Lisa McDonald / March 22, 2019

Borophene, a 2D sheet of boron atoms, is extremely flexible, strong, and lightweight—even more so than graphene, its carbon-based cousin. Researchers at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Yale University have succeeded in growing large-area sheets of borophene for the first time.

Single layer superconductivity

By / October 30, 2009

Physicists at Brookhaven National Laboratory have identified a single layer responsible for one such material’s ability to become superconducting. The technique, described in the Oct. 30, 2009, issue of Science, could be used to engineer ultrathin films with “tunable” superconductivity for higher-efficiency electronic devices. The thinner the material (and the higher its transition temperature to…
