Two-dimensional honeycomb crystals have inspired intense research interest for their novel properties and great potential in electronics and optoelectronics. Here, through molecular beam epitaxy on SrTiO3(001), we report successful epitaxial growth of metal-rich chalcogenide Fe2Te, a honeycomb-structured film that has no direct bulk analogue, under Te-limited growth conditions. The structural morphology and electronic properties of Fe2Te are explored with scanning tunneling microscopy and angle…

Epitaxial growth of two-dimensional stanene.
The synthesis of stanene and its derivatives will stimulate further experimental investigation of their theoretically predicted properties, such as a 2D topological insulating behaviour with a very large bandgap, and the capability to support enhanced thermoelectric performance, topological superconductivity and the near-room-temperature quantum anomalous Hall effect.
Epitaxial Growth of Honeycomb Monolayer CuSe with Dirac Nodal Line Fermions.
The results suggest that the honeycomb monolayer transition metal monochalcogenide can be a new platform to study 2D DNLFs, and good agreement of angle resolved photoemission spectra with the calculated band structures of CuSe/Cu(111) demonstrates that the sample is monolayers CuSe with a honeycomb lattice.
Epitaxial growth of ultraflat stanene with topological band inversion
A flat stanene layer can be grown on Cu (111) by MBE growth, exhibiting topological properties as revealed by a combination of ARPES, STM and DFT calculations.
Field-effect transistors made from solution-grown two-dimensional tellurene
The reliable production of two-dimensional (2D) crystals is essential for the development of new technologies based on 2D materials. However, current synthesis methods suffer from a variety of
Two-Dimensional Tellurene as Excellent Thermoelectric Material
We study the thermoelectric properties of two-dimensional tellurene by first-principles calculations and semiclassical Boltzmann transport theory. The HSE06 hybrid functional results in a moderate
Electric Field Effect in Atomically Thin Carbon Films
Monocrystalline graphitic 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.
Bismuthene on a SiC substrate: A candidate for a high-temperature quantum spin Hall material
The combined theoretical and experimental results demonstrate a concept for a quantum spin Hall wide-gap scenario, where the chemical potential resides in the global system gap, ensuring robust edge conductance.
Stability and exfoliation of germanane: a germanium graphane analogue.
This material represents a new class of covalently terminated graphane analogues and has great potential for a wide range of optoelectronic and sensing applications, especially since theory predicts a direct band gap of 1.53 eV and an electron mobility ca.
Superconductivity in few-layer stanene
A single atomic slice of α-tin—stanene—has been predicted to host the quantum spin Hall effect at room temperature, offering an ideal platform to study low-dimensional and topological physics.
