University of the Basque Country team succeed in characterising boron nitride on a nanometric scale

Abstract:
The Physics of Materials team at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), part of the Mixed Centre created between this UPV/EHU Physics of Materials team and the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF), led by Ángel Rubio, has completed the first comprehensive study of the properties of boron nitrite on a nanometric scale. The prestigious journal, Physical Review Letters, one of the most important in the field of physics, has published three articles that summarise the findings of the team. The last of these articles may be consulted in the new issue of the journal - number 98. The thorough control and knowledge of the properties boron nitride opens the door to the design of new materials based on this compound and, likewise, has implications in other fields such as biology.
