Silicene: Structure, Properties and Applications (Springer Series in Materials Science)


This publication reports the present state-of-the artwork of unmarried layer silicene as much as thicker silicon nanosheets, and their constitution, houses and power purposes. Silicene is a newly came across fabric that's one atomic layer imagine. it's a two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterial that's labeled as a nanosheet, which has huge lateral dimensions as much as micrometres, yet thicknesses of basically nanometres or much less. Silicon nanosheets are presently a really ‘hot’ sector of analysis. the original homes and morphology of such fabrics lead them to perfect for a number of functions, together with digital units, batteries and sensors. 2nd nanosheets of silicon could be regarded as analogues of graphene. As silicon is already the most important part of digital units, the importance of nanosheets composed of silicon is they may be extra simply built-in into current digital units. additionally, if second nanostructured Si should be carried out into such units, then their measurement may be lowered into the nano-regime, delivering designated houses assorted from bulk Si that's at the moment hired. The ebook is written for researchers and graduate scholars.
