New Phases of Germanene was Investigeted Using Comp. NanoSci.

New Phases of Germanene was Investigeted Using Comp. NanoSci.

Recent theoretical and experimental studies have proven that germanium can have stable, single layer honeycomb structures like graphene and it is entitled as germanene. It has been also shown that germanene share several of the exceptional properties of graphene. However, in contrast to suspended graphene which can be easily exfoliated from 3D layered graphite; free-standing single [...]
