Formation of monolayer and few-layer hexagonal boron nitride nanosheetsvia surface segregation

Abstract

We report that few-layer hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets can be produced by using a surface segregation method. The formation of h-BN sheets is via an intermediate boron–nitrogen buffer layer. Our results suggest that surface segregation of boron and nitrogen from a solid source is an alternative approach to tailoring synthesis of h-BN sheets for potential applications such as in graphene electronics.
