  • L.H.L. thanks W. Kenji and T. Taniguchi from NIMS Japan for providing hBN single crystals, B. Cowie from the Australian Synchrotron for assistance during NEXAFS measurements, H. Zhang and Y. Chen from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, as well as P. Cizek from Deakin University for help with TEM investigations. We acknowledge the scientific and technical assistance from the Australian Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Facility at the RMIT University. This research was undertaken in part on the soft X-ray beamline at the Australian Synchrotron, Victoria, Australia.

Abstract

original image

Freie Entfaltung: Bornitrid-Nanobänder (BNNRs) mit einigen Mikrometern Länge und Breiten im zweistelligen Nanometerbereich sind direkt und ohne Nachbehandlung über die Synthese entsprechender Nanoröhren zugänglich. Untersuchungen der Röntgenabsorptions-Feinstruktur bescheinigen den BNNRs eine hohe chemische Reinheit und Kristallinität.
