Gold Substrate Used To Synthesize Graphene’s Cousin Germanene

A team of European research experts at Aix-Marseille University utilised gold substrate to attain a new milestone by becoming one of the first groups to grow the 2-D nanomaterial germanene.

According to a study, germanene, a ‘cousin of graphene’, comprises of a simple single layer of germanium atoms and is expected to exhibit remarkable electrical and optical properties, that can be used in future electronics and its unique insulating characteristic increases the chance of it being uti...
