Dots versus antidots: computational exploration of structure, magnetism, and half-metallicity in boron-nitride nanostructures.


Triangle-shaped nanohole, nanodot, and lattice antidot structures in hexagonal boron-nitride (h-BN) monolayer sheets are characterized with density functional theory calculations utilizing the local spin density approximation. We find that such structures may exhibit very large magnetic moments and associated spin splitting. N-terminated nanodots and… (More)
