Two dimensional (2D) elementary materials such as silicene, germanene or phosphorene are emerging alternatives to graphene which adds to the consolidated class of layered metal dichalchogenides. In particular, 2D silicon nanosheets would benefit from the potential integration with the quite ubiquitous Si technology thus opening new scaling perspectives of the conventional electronic devices. In this framework we report here on the 2D epitaxy of a Si monolayer onto a MoS template with a locally hexagonal registry [1]. The experimental data are consistent with an ab initio calculated highly stretched silicene lattice [2]. High resolution photoemission spectroscopy investigations evidence a nearly metallic character of the Si nanosheet and a significant band bending on the MoS side which claims for a Si-induced electron accumulation. Integration into a bottom gated field effect transistor results in the effective …
