Scientists stabilize atomically thin boron for practical use: Borophane is stable outside a vacuum, opening possibilities for real-world applications

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 strength, flexibility and electronics properties. Stronger, lighter and more flexible than graphene,…
