Title: The stability, electronic structure, and optical absorption of boron-nitride diamondoids predicted with first-principles calculations

Abstract

The stability, electronic structure, and optical properties of six boron-nitride diamondoids are systematically studied with state-of-the-art computational methods and compared with diamondoids.
