Long may you wave, boropheneLong may you wave, borophene
Rice University researchers say 2-D boron may be best for flexible electronics
Though they’re touted as ideal for electronics, two-dimensional materials like graphene may be too flat and hard to stretch to serve in flexible, wearable devices. “Wavy” borophene might be better, according to Rice University scientists. (October 4, 2016)
