Researchers find new ways to image, characterize unique material

Borophene, a single-atom layer of the element boron, is super-strong and super-flexible–plus it’s a superconductor. For years, the material graphene has entranced the scientific world because of its incredible strength and flexibility. It can conduct electricity better than any other material at room temperature. It has been engineered to store electronic data, and could transform the way we make computer chips. A three-dimensional form of graphene is our best candidate for building in space. People have wondered if the material will instigate the next industrial revolution. It has even made its way into consumer products, like lightbulbs and jackets, and graphene hair dye might be on its way.Read Full Story
