We describe monocrystalline graphitic films, which are a few atoms thick but are nonetheless stable under ambient conditions, metallic, and of remarkably high quality. The films are found to be a two-dimensional semimetal with a tiny overlap between valence and conductance bands, and they exhibit a strong ambipolar electric field effect such that electrons and holes in concentrations up to 1013 per square centimeter and with room-temperature mobilities of ∼10,000 square centimeters per volt… Expand

Tunable bandgap in silicene and germanene.
Ab initio quantum transport simulation of a dual-gated silicene field effect transistor confirms that the vertical electric field opens a transport gap, and a significant switching effect by an applied gate voltage is also observed, meaning biased single-layer silicenes and germanene can work effectively at room temperature as field effect transistors.
