Graphene and Boron Nitride Combined With Precision: A new technique for combining graphene with hexagonal boron

Graphene and Boron Nitride Combined With Precision: A new technique for combining graphene with hexagonal boron

The struggle for which material will be the de facto choice for two-dimensional (2-D) devices in future electronics has been ratcheting up over the last couple of years. In July of last year, IEEE Spectrum covered the development of the long-predicted single-layer thick structure of silicon, known as silicene . 2-D silicon is expected to have some of the same remarkable characteristics as graphene, but deliver them in a material that the semiconductor industry has been working with for decades. Another material that has been pushing graphene for the throne of the 2-D material of the future has been molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). Two years ago it seemed that at best MoS2 could achieve would to be simply a complimentary material to graphene in applications that required transparent semiconductors. Over the last six months, it’s no longer clear that MoS2 shouldn't have it's own...
