Germanene is a 2D material created from an alloy of germanium and platinum. It exhibits superconductive properties and could be a potential replacement for conventional silicon transistors.

Developing on another element to the growing list of two-dimensional materials, researchers from the University of Twente in the Netherlands have demonstrated that germanene, a 2D material made of germanium atoms, can behave as a topological insulator – the first to consist of a single element – meaning it is comparable to transistors in that it can switch between on and off states for pote...
