Recent progress on the synthesis, characterization, fabrication, property measurements and applications of in-plane and vertically grown BCN atomic layers and their nanostructures is briefly reviewed. They show a rich variety of physical properties that enable numerous possible technological applications in the fields of nanoelectronics, optical devices, field emission, catalysis, energy technology, lubrication, and gas storage.
