Title Nitrogen and beryllium pressed into service as new 2D material Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Materials Today, Elsevier Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 06/05/2021 Description An international team, including researchers from the University of Bayreuth in Germany, has succeeded in discovering a previously unknown two-dimensional (2D) material using modern high-pressure technology.
The new material, beryllonitrene, consists of regularly arranged nitrogen and beryllium atoms, and possesses an unusual electronic lattice structure that shows great potential for applications in quantum technology. Its synthesis required a compression pressure about one million times higher than the pressure of the Earth's atmosphere. The researchers report their discovery in a paper in Physical Review Letters.
