Silicon "graphene"
The silicon analog of graphene, dubbed silicene, might have potential in a wide range of electronics and engineering technologies, perhaps bridging the gap between conventional silicon semiconductor microcircuitry and the next generation of molecular and graphene-based electronics. Patrick Vogt of Berlin's Technical University, Germany, and Paola De Padova from the Istituto di Struttura della Materia in Italy criticize research that claims evidence of silicon monolayers akin to graphene. They have now used simple chemical vapor deposition techniques to grow a one atom-thick silicon layer on a silver crystal surface, and have strong evidence to support the production of silicone.
Silicene grown for (probably) the first time
