Raman Spectroscopy of Low Dimensional Systems
What is it about?
Two dimensional materials like Graphene has generated a lot of interest. The Silicon analogue of Graphene, Silicene has a puckered (buckled) structure. We show that this buckling can be identified raman spectroscopy using a metal nanoparticles as tips.
Why is it important?
Silicene is the next hot material of this decade.
