Silicene is the Si analogue of graphene with the same honeycomb structure and linear dispersions of the π and π* bands at the K point of the Brillouin zone. It is predicted to realize a buckled structure, due to sp2-sp3 hybridization, and is compatible with the current Si-based nano-electronics. Silicene yet has not been achieved by mechanical exfoliation but can be deposited on metallic substrates such as Ag(111), Ir(111), and ZrB2(0001). Regrettably, strong interaction with these substrates destroys the Dirac physics. Layered materials such as MgBr2(0001), MoX2, and GaX2 (X = S, Se, and Te), on the other hand, might preserve the characteristic electronic features. The effects of different substrates on silicene will be compared and evaluated with respect to technological requirements.
