Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Notably, the physical characteristics of h-BN-G heterostructures are related to the linking type in the interface. Thus, it becomes an important subject that how to form particular-type boundaries during growth process and how to identify the atomic linking type. This chapter mainly introduces the study of interface type and interfacial electron state of h-BN-G heterostructures.
