  journal={arXiv: Materials Science},
Three two-dimensional phosphorus nitride (PN) monolayer sheets (named as $\alpha$-, $\beta$-, and $\gamma$-PN, respectively) with fantastic structures and properties are predicted based on first-principles calculations. The $\alpha$-PN and $\gamma$-PN are buckled structure, whereas $\beta$-PN shows puckered characteristics. Their unique structures endows these atomic PN sheets with high dynamic stabilities and anisotropic mechanical properties. They are all indirect semiconductors and their… Expand
