A Perspective on Two-Dimensional Xenes

Buckled two-dimensional Xene sheets

Silicene, germanene and stanene are part of a monoelemental class of two-dimensional (2D) crystals termed 2D-Xenes (X = Si, Ge, Sn and so on) which  may open new reserach frontiers in science at the nanoscale and nanotechnology.  The Perspective proposed by Alessandro Molle (CNR-IMM) et al. on Nature Materials 16, 163 (2017) highlights the current state of the art and future opportunities in the manipulation and stability of these materials, their functions and applications, and novel device concepts.
