Title: Borophenes, boron layer allotropes and methods of preparation

Abstract

A method of preparing an atomically-dimensioned elemental boron allotrope includes providing a substrate at a temperature greater than about 200° C.; generating elemental boron vapor from a solid elemental boron source; and contacting said substrate with said boron vapor for at least one of a rate and at a pressure sufficient to deposit on said substrate a boron allotrope comprising an elemental boron layer comprising a boron atomic thickness dimension, said method under negative pressure.
