Is super-thin borophene the future of wearables?

Graphene has been touted as a possible next generation material for wearables, smartphones, and other electronic devices, but scientists at Rice University suspect borophene, an atom-thick substance, could provide even better results. One of the main differences between graphene and borophene is the undulating structure it takes when moved from its typical state, metallic, to.
