Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) few-layer film, often referred to as h-BN nanosheets (h-BNNS), has an ultra-flat surface without dangling bonds. Due to its oxidation resistance even at high temperatures (up to 1000 oC) and chemical resistance to both acids and bases, it is believed to be a better substrate than silicon.
High quality h-BN few-layer film is available on 2 different substrates: SiO2/Si and PET (polyethylene terephthalate). Different sizes and substrates of few-layer h-BN films are also available on request.
- Glass (1 cm × 1 cm, 1 cm × 2 cm, 2 cm × 2 cm or custom-made sizes)
- Sapphire (1 cm × 1 cm, 1 cm × 2 cm, 2 cm × 2 cm or custom-made sizes)
- Silicon (1 cm × 1 cm, 1 cm × 2 cm, 2 cm × 2 cm or custom-made sizes)
- Quartz (1 cm × 1 cm, 1 cm × 2 cm, 2 cm × 2 cm or custom-made sizes)
- Copper (5 cm × 10 cm or custom-made sizes)
Due to its special chemical properties and electronic structure, h-BN often acts as an atomic flat insulating substrate, or a tunneling dielectric barrier in graphene and other 2D electronics. Like graphene, h-BN exhibits excellent mechanical flexibility, chemical and temperature stability, and high thermal conductivity. h-BN has been used as a protective membrane in devices such as deep ultraviolet and quantum photonic emitters, where it provides strong oxidation resistance. It has also been utilised as a tunnelling barrier in field-effect tunnelling transistors.
High quality few-layer h-BN films were first grown directly on copper foil via the chemical vapour deposition (CVD) method. The films were later transferred to the desired substrates using wet chemical transfer process.
h-BN few-layer film can be used in various research purposes, such as microscopic analysis, photoluminescence, and Raman spectroscopy studies. h-BN few-layer film can also be transferred to other substrates.
