White Graphene Could Develop Thinner, More Flexible Electronics

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory are examining “white graphene” for the development of new electronics and quantum devices.

“The material, technically known as hexagonal boron nitride, features better transparency than its sister, graphene, is chemically inert, or non-reactive, and atomically smooth. It also features high mechanical strength and thermal conductivity,” phys.org reported.

White graphene is “an insulator instead of a conductor of electricity, making it useful as a substrate and the foundation for the electronics in cell phones, laptops, tablets and many other devices,” phys.org added.

With white graphene as a substrate, researchers believe they can reduce the thickness and increase the flexibility of electronic devices, according to phys.org.
