    Ab initio calculations are used to design a crystalline boron-oxygen-yttrium (BOY) phase. The essential constituent is yttrium substituting for oxygen in the boron suboxide structure (BO[SUB0.17]) with Y/B and O/B ratios of 0.07. The calculations predict that the BOY phase is 0.36 eV/atom more...
