Here comes silicene, possible graphene replacement: via @ee_times, published in #PRL

Here comes silicene, possible graphene replacement Peter Clarke 4/30/2012 8:35 AM EDT LONDON – Science researchers have reported the growth of a single layer of silicon on top of silver, in a hexagonal 2-D form of silicon similar to the graphene form of carbon. A team from universities in Berlin and Marseille and research institutes in Rome and Saint Aubin, France has published a paper in Physical Review Letters that claims to show evidence of the synthesis of epitaxial silicene sheets on a silver (111) substrate. Silicon and carbon both have four valence electrons which means that the two elements should be able to demonstrate a degree of similarity including the possibility of silicon-based life forms and carbon-based conductors and semiconductors. Graphene has attracted much attention recently because it offers higher electron mobility than materials used to date in sil...
