Borophene is a household of two-dimensional (2D) boron supplies containing many isomers with totally different gap concentrations and distributions in a triangular lattice. Though it has been broadly studied theoretically and a few have been synthesized experimentally, their thermodynamic properties are nonetheless unexplored. Based mostly on the density useful concept (DFT), we developed an correct potential for the kinetic Monte Carlo (kMC) simulations of borophene. Via in depth kMC simulations, new phases have been found, such because the glass state of borophene, liquid borophene and borophene with giant holes. A part diagram of borophene is constructed to information future experiments on borophene supplies at excessive temperature.
