2D Sheets of Tin Atoms to Have Exotic Uses in Electronics

Just as graphene varies from ordinary graphite, stanenes behave extremely differently in order to humble tin in bulk form. Due to relatively strong spin-orbit interactions for electrons in heavy elements, single-layer tin has been predicted to be a “topological insulator,” also called a quantum spin HallĀ …
