Hexagonal boron nitride sheets may help graphene supplant silicon What researchers might call "white graphene" may be the perfect sidekick for the real thing as a new era unfolds in nanoscale electronics. But single-atom-thick layers of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), the material under intense study at Rice University's world-class Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, are likely to find some macro applications as well. Researchers in the lab of Pulickel Ajayan, Rice's...

One-atom-thick sheet offers new microelectronic possibilities Rice University researchers have found a way to stitch graphene and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) into a two-dimensional quilt that offers new paths of exploration for materials scientists. The technique has implications for application of graphene materials in microelectronics that scale well below the limitations of silicon determined by Moore's Law. New research from the lab of Pulickel Ajayan, Rice's Benjamin M. and Mary...

  • To take pains; labor assiduously with little progress.
This word comes from the Spanish 'pongale,' put it.
