Growth of Nanoholes Visible for the First Time Thanks to Helium Scattering

Scientists were able to observe and document the growth of hexagonal boron nitride for the first time


Atomically thin 2D materials for applications in microelectronics or nanotechnology are grown by breaking down gas on a hot metal surface. Due to the high temperatures and rapid transformation of the gas, it is extremely difficult to observe this process. Researchers from TU Graz have now joined ...
