The semimetallic material under current study is an alloy of germanium, antimony and tellurium in the ratio of 1:2:4.
It is not a metal element and it actually has semimetallic characteristics, which means that silicon does not stand as a single atom, but rather as a chemical compound of silicon dioxide or a complex compound or silicon silicate.1 In addition, silicone is a cross-linked polymer with methyl siloxane as the basic element.
studied the electronic structure, band structure, and optical properties of Fe and Mn codoped Sn[O.sub.2] by first principles and concluded that after the Fe and Mn codoping, the material exhibited semimetallic properties [9].
The Fermi level is located in the conduction band at the L-point and in the valence band at the T-point: this produces semimetallic characteristics where electrons and holes coexist, as shown in Figure 1(b).
The physicochemical properties of CNTs mainly associate with several aspects, including an organized architecture with a high aspect ratio, surface area, mechanical strength, electrical and thermal conductivity, metallic or semimetallic behavior, and ultra-lightweight [41].
