The 4th International Meeting on Silicene
will be held in Beijing ,China from June 11-13,
2014. Silicene is the silicon analog of graphene, which has attracted great
interest in the past few years as it may provide a possibility to combine novel
concepts, such as Dirac fermions and spintronics
with the traditional silicon technology. As both theoretical and experimental
works are rapidly increasing, many open questions still demand to be answered.
The “International Meeting on Silicene” is aimed to stimulate discussions among
researchers in this growing field, to establish collaborations and to bring
more researchers into the fascinating silicene research.
The topics of this meeting
will cover all aspects of silicene, such as theoretical predictions and
proposals, experimental fabrication, physics and chemistry properties,
measurement of electronic and optical properties, devices and applications. The
meeting also encourages researchers from relative research fields, such as graphene
and other 2D materials, to stimulate new ideas by discussions in a broader
while relevant field.
