Self healing mechanisms of vacancy defects in graphene and silicene are studied using first principles calculations. We investigated host adatom adsorption, diffusion, vacancy formation and revealed atomistic mechanisms in the healing of single, double and triple vacancies of single layer graphene and silicene. Silicon adatom, which is adsorbed to silicene at the top site forms a dumbbell like structure by pushing one Si atom underneath. The asymmetric reconstruction of the single vacancy in… CONTINUE READING
