We have calculated the electronic properties of graphene and SiC, GeC and SnC monolayers in a two-dimensional graphene-like honeycomb structure under various strained conditions using first principles calculations based on density functional theory and the quasiparticle GW approximation. Our results show that the indirect–direct band gap transition of group-IV carbides can be tuned by strain, which indicates a possible new route for tailoring the electronic properties of ultrathin nanofilms… Expand
