SCIENCE NEWS: Are defects capable of making inert materials useful and active?

SCIENCE NEWS: Photoluminescence can detect defects in hexagonal boron-nitride’s lattice structure. Photoluminescence is when a light beam is reflected with energy or color on the material. This causes the defect to change in color. The figure also shows hydrogen bubbles generated from defects that have catalyst atoms (gray spheres attached at the vacancies). Credit: Elizabeth…
