We study electrostatic quantum dot confinement for charge carriers in silicene. The confinement is formed by vertical electric field surrounding the quantum dot area. The resulting energy gap in the outside of the quantum dot traps the carriers within, and the difference of electrostatic potentials on the buckled silicene sublattices produces nonzero… CONTINUE READING
