We carry out a layer-by-layer investigation to understand electron transport across metal-insulator-metal junctions. Interfacial structures of junctions were studied and characterized using first-principles density functional theory within the generalized gradient approximation. We found that as a function of the number of crystal layers the calculated transmission coefficients of multilayer silicene junctions decay much slower than for BN-based junctions We revisited the semiclassical…

Hexagonal boron nitride monolayers on metal supports: Versatile templates for atoms, molecules and nanostructures
Abstract Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) monolayers have attracted considerable interest as atomically thin sp2-hybridized sheets that are readily synthesized on various metal supports. They complement
