Light in deep ultraviolet DUV region has a wide range of applications and the demand for finding
DUV light emitting materials at nanoscale is increasingly urgent as they are vital for building
miniaturized optic and optoelectronic devices. We discover that boron nitride nanotubes BNNTs
with a well-crystallized cylindrical multiwall structure and diameters smaller than 10 nm can have
single DUV emission at 225 nm 5.51 eV. The measured BNNTs are grown on substrate in the form
of a thin film....[Show more]
