To e-, or not to e-, the question for exotic Si-III (BC8)

April 4, 2017

Is Si-III a metal with freely travelling electrons, or a semiconductor with a discrete energy gap that can "stop" the flow? Our new work shows that the latter is true, but the band gap of Si-III is so small that electrons can "proceed with caution" through the structure.

The work is published in PRL.
