The effects of stacking mode and thickness on the frictional behaviour of multilayer silicene

Understanding the contact behaviour of 2D materials in nanoscale is of great importance for their applications. In the present work, molecular dynamics simulation is employed to study the frictional

Bending moduli for forty-four select atomic monolayers from first principles

Bending moduli generally increase with thickness of the monolayer, while spanning three orders of magnitude between the different materials, and are prone to a higher degree of anisotropy relative to those with a rectangular lattice.

Bending moduli for thirty-two select atomic monolayers from first principles

We calculate bending moduli along the principal directions for thirty-two select atomic monolayers using ab initio Density Functional Theory (DFT). Specifically, considering representative materials

Using first-principles calculations, we systematically investigate the structures and properties of diamondene-like silicon monolayer (Si4). The Si4 is verified to be dynamically stable by its phonon

Electrospun Nanofibers Embedded with Perovskite Quantum Dots

Because of their tunable bandgap, wide visible emission wavelength, and high photoluminescence quantum yield and mobility, perovskite quantum dots (PQDs) have potential in various applications, such

Perovskite Quantum Dots: Synthesis, Properties and Applications

This chapter gives an overviewof the synthesis of perovskite nanocrystals. The most commonly used methods are the precipitation method and the injection. Other methods are also mentioned briefly with

Functionalized few-layer silicene nanosheets: stability, elastic, structural, and electronic properties.

This paper presents an ab initio investigation, performed in the framework of density functional theory, on the properties of functionalized few-layer silicene nanosheets, denoted as Si2X2 bilayers



Stacking-dependent electronic structure of bilayer silicene

Bilayer silicene (BLS) is a class of material that possibly holds both topological and superconducting properties; however, its structure is not fully understood. By scanning stacking modes and

Free-Standing Bilayer Silicene: The Effect of Stacking Order on the Structural, Electronic, and Transport Properties

We theoretically investigate the structural, electronic, and transport properties of bilayer silicene. Due to the large numbers of degrees of freedom permitted by the buckled structure of the

Mechanical properties and fracture dynamics of silicene membranes.

This work investigated, through density functional based tight-binding (DFTB), as well as reactive molecular dynamics (using ReaxFF), the mechanical properties of suspended single-layer silicene, and analysed the differences due to distinct edge morphologies, namely zigzag and armchair.

Optimized interatomic potential for silicon and its application to thermal stability of silicene

An optimized interatomic potential has been constructed for silicon using a modified Tersoff model. The potential reproduces a wide range of properties of Si and improves over existing potentials

Buckled silicene formation on Ir(111).

This work provides a method to fabricate high-quality silicene and an explanation for the formation of the buckled silicenes sheet.

Two- and one-dimensional honeycomb structures of silicon and germanium.

First-principles calculations of structure optimization, phonon modes, and finite temperature molecular dynamics predict that silicon and germanium can have stable, two-dimensional, low-buckled, honeycomb structures, which show remarkable electronic and magnetic properties, which are size and orientation dependent.

Understanding of the Buckling Distortions in Silicene

Silicene, the all Si analogue of graphene is structurally different due to the presence of buckling distortions in the individual six membered rings. The sufficiently strong coupling between the
