Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Silicene, Graphyne, Graphdiyne and Graphane - A Technology Briefing and Scouting Report that Looks Beyond Graphene" report to their offering.
The technology scouting services arm of Del Stark Technology Solutions has published a new technology briefing on Silicene, Graphyne, Graphdiyne and Graphane to look at materials beyond Graphene. This report provides access to news, patents, academic research findings and also highlights universities and institutes working in the field, as well as, companies and research organisations that are patenting.
Silicene has been described as the graphene equivalent for silicon and has attracted tremendous attention as it could have a wider impact on the future developments in expanding areas of spintronics and nanoelectronics.
Silicene has a tunable band gap and displays interesting physical, magnetic, and electronic properties and structurally it has been described as a honeycomb configuration. These features have been highly contrasted in the literature against graphene, demonstrating that silicene has a richer structure. This structure can be used for functionalisation and developing future electronics and electro-magnetic correlated devices. The possible compatibility of silicene with current silicon-based micro-/nano technology will be of huge industrial interest.
Silicene is one of hot materials and promising as a material used for device applications.

Silicene is expected to enter industry in a big way because the Silicon technology is very well developed and much of that may be used to develop Silicene based electronics.
