Success in isolating a 2D graphene sheet from bulky graphite has triggered intensive studies of its physical properties as well as its appliion in devices. Graphite intercalation compounds (GICs) have provided a platform of exotic quantum phenomena such as superconductivity, but it is unclear whether such intercalation is feasible in the thinnest 2D limit (i.e., bilayer graphene). Here we
SiC, and 2.33 A for bulk silicon—and a large band gap (2.5–2.6 eV) have been predicted˚ 13–15. A recent cluster expansion study explored the space of possible C:Si mixings, ﬁnding the lowest formation energy for the isoatomic stoichiometry16.
Silicon nanocrystals (Si-NCs) were grown in situ in carbide-based film using a plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition method. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy indies that these nanocrystallites were eedded in an amorphous silicon carbide-based matrix. Electron diffraction pattern analyses revealed that the crystallites have a hexagonal-wurtzite silicon phase structure

It shows that the energy band gap increased as the composition of SiO 2 was increased due to the dielectric properties of silicon dioxide. FTIR results analysis exhibit common band in the range of 400 – 4000 cm-1. The observed band near 2350 cm-1 shows the
SiC (silicon carbide) is a compound semiconductor composed of silicon and carbide. SiC provides a nuer of advantages over silicon, including 10x the breakdown electric field strength, 3x the band gap, and enabling a wider range of p- and n-type control required for device construction.

For example by supplying silicon in a vapor phase compound [e.g., silane ()] or by flowing an inert gas over the hot silicon carbide surface (). Alternatively, the confinement controlled sublimation method developed at Georgia Tech relies on confining the silicon carbide in a graphite enclosure (either in vacuum or in an inert gas).
Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a direct band gap semiconductor, with a wide band gap of 3.4 eV (electronvolt), 2.4x wider than Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) and 3x wider than Silicon. This makes GaN better suited for high-power and high-frequency devices, as it derives lower switching and conduction losses.
