Piezoelectric Properties of 2D Nanoallotropes of Boron Nitride

The independent components of the tensor of piezoelectric moduli are calculated for various 2D nanoallotropes of boron nitride. The principle of the proposed approximation calculation method consists in the fact that the effective dipole moment of the unit cell of the 2D structure normalized to the unit area is expressed through the tensor of elastic rigidities and relative cell deformations. It is shown that, in addition to well-known graphite-like boron nitride h-BN, its other hexagonal and tetragonal nanoallotropes possessing higher piezoelectric properties in comparison to h-BN can be of practical interest as well.
