What is it about?
Calculated X-ray absorption spectra (XAS) are discussed in connection to zero point motion.
Why is it important?
Vibration effects in 2D-stored nanostructured materials can affect the mechanical properties in unexpected ways. It is therefore of great interest to examine the properties of the vibration modes in these materials. One of the most common 2D materials is graphite which is a mineral consisting solely of the elementary carbon where the carbon atoms form crystals with flat hexagonally structured layers. A related 2D material is boron nitride which is a rare mineral that also consists of hexagonally structured layers of both carbon and nitrogen atom.
