Graphene is a single atom thick layer of carbon. It was thought to change everything but forget that, because now there's silicene. Researchers just made the first sheet of single atom thick silicon.
Silicene has been a work in progress for years, but its finally done now and it works well with components. That's because silicene is made of silicon, which most chips are already made of.
Patrick Vogt of Berlin's Technical University in Germany, along side researchers at Aix-Marseille University in France managed to create silicene by condensing silicon vapor onto a silver plate to form a single layer of atoms.
The researchers tested the sheet and found that it closely matched properties it was theorized to exhibit.
