Abstract

New properties, structures, and concepts in solid silicon materials have been glimpsed in several experiments. In addition to the recent systematic effort to use organometallic chemical methods to make and characterize free-standing “capped” crystallites or quantum dots—the figure shows one structure of a capped polysilyne oligomer–new chemical approaches to capped nanometer silicon micelles, puckered sheets, clusters and crystallites are presented.
