The Si counterpart of graphene—silicene—has partially similar but also unique electronic properties that relate to the presence of an extended π electronic system, the flexible crystal structure and the large spin-orbit coupling. Driven by predictions for exceptional electronic properties like the presence of massless charge carriers, the occurrence of the… CONTINUE READING
