Silicene, a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb structure similar to graphene, has been successfully fabricated on an Ir(111) substrate. It is characterized as a (√7×√7) superstructure with respect to the substrate lattice, as revealed by low energy electron diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy. Such a superstructure coincides with the (√3×√3)(More)
Six types of moiré superstructures of graphene on Ir(111) with different orientations (labeled as R0, R14, R19, R23, R26 and R30) are investigated by low-energy electron diffraction, scanning tunneling microscopy and first-principles calculations. The moiré superstructure of R0 graphene has remarkable diffraction spots and deeper corrugation than that of(More)
Two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb systems made of elements with d electrons are rare. Here, we report the fabrication of a transition metal (TM) 2D layer, namely, hafnium crystalline layers on Ir(111). Experimental characterization reveals that the Hf layer has its own honeycomb lattice, morphologically identical to graphene. First-principles calculations(More)
