The silicon counterpart of graphene, the so called “silicene”, has been so far a fascinating theoretical hypothesis, but only recent efforts have pushed it to concrete evidence thus triggering a tremendous interest in silicene for electronic applications and fundamental investigations. Indeed, in addition to graphene, silicene is expected to provide an intimate affinity with the Sibased technology but, unlike graphene, the silicene appears as a buckled lattice where various superstructures take place depending on the periodic ...
