Electronic structure of silicon-based nanostructures
We have developed a unifying tight-binding Hamiltonian that can account for the electronic properties of recently proposed Si-based nanostructures, namely, Si graphene-like sheets and Si nanotubes. We considered the sp3s∗ ...
Fundamentals of silicene
Silicene is a single atomic layer of silicon (Si) much like graphene, the first example of an elemental twodimensional (2D) nanomaterial whose study led to the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. Until 2010 or so, the only known ...
