Bismuthene is a 2D material similar to graphene that is usually fabricated on a substrate, which limits its application in electronics and quantum computing. This technology is a method of preparing uniform and substrate-free bismuthene. Each bismuthene nanoflake has an equilateral triangle shape with a 10-100 ┬Ám side length and an atomic-thin thickness of 3-10 nm. The nanoflakes are highly crystalline, consisting of bismuth atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice. Applications for bismuthene include in quantum electronic devices for quantum systems.

Advantages:
-Substrate-free
-Uniform shape
-Atomic-thin thickness

Potential Applications:
-Quantum computing
-Spintronic devices
-Electronics
