Silicene Transistor-1

Scientists develop the world’s thinnest transistor using silicene, a close kin of graphene

While the entire world is extolling graphene as a wonder material, scientists, working at the University of Texas at Austin, have developed the world's first silicene-based transistor. Identified through computer models, almost a decade before graphene was first isolated, silicene is a one-atom-thick allotrope of silicon. Despite its impressive electrical properties, silicene is widely believed to be…
