This book examines in detail the application and theory of slicene-based layered materials, offering a new perspective on up-to-date mainstream theoretical and experimental research. It includes a wide range of layered systems, and takes into account the critical factors involved, such as the group-IV monoelements, stacking configurations, layer numbers, Moire superlattices. multiorbital chemical bondings and spin-orbit coupling are discussed in detail, and the theoretical framework with first-principles calculations are developed to thoroughly describe the physical, chemical, and material phenomena and concise images explain the fundamental properties. The book is an invaluable guide for researchers studying silicene-based materials.
- Provides an up-to-date and comprehensive discussion of the physical properties of silicene and its bilayers
- Covers the basic theory, experimental methods and results of research conducted on silicene
- Includes comparisons with other 2D materials that are missing from existing books
- Includes detailed comparisons between numerical simulations and experimental models/results, and the conclusions that can be drawn from these
- Includes practice problems and a concluding chapter covering methods that readers can use to develop theoretical frameworks
