Si(NiTe2)2 also known as SiNi2Te4 or Ni2SiTe4 is a layered semimetal with exciting magnetotransport and quantum properties. It crystallizes in monoclinic phase (P121/c1) wherein Ni and Si cations are sandwiched between Te anion atoms forming the individual layers. Ni2SiTe4 crystals are all perfectly layered and easy to exfoliate much similar to MoS2 and Bi2Te3 crystals. The material is rather new and its properties remain largely unknown. Our Ni2SiTe4 crystals have been synthesized through chemical vapor transport (CVT) technique at high purity limits (99.9995% or higher) to ensure crystals are environmentally stable and optical/electronic grade. Each order comes with couple mm sized crystals as shown in the product images.
