Atomically Sharp, Closed Bilayer Phosphorene Edges by Self-Passivation
Posted November 4, 2022
New publication update on a Friday to start your weekend ! In this new publication, published in #ACSNano the formation of two-dimensional crystals’ edge structures was investigated. These edges must be carefully examined because they often display complex, unexpected features at the atomic scale, such as reconstruction, functionalization, and uncontrolled contamination. Using the #FusionSelect, the authors found that edges undergo reconstruction which required atomical precision measurements in the electron microscope! This type of research will help increase the fundamental understanding of the synthesis, degradation, reconstruction, and applications of 2D materials.
