A Theoretical Framework of Elastic, Thermo-Physical Properties of the Monolayer Stanene

In the 2D materials family, stanene has drawn a specific interest because of its remarkable exhibitions and properties. Stanene is one of the most active areas of nanomaterials research due to their potential for integration into next-generation electronic. Using many body interactions that lead to bond charge model, the elastic, thermo-physical, and Debye temperature variations of monolayer stanene were investigated. The elasticity is a fundamental property of crystalline materials and is of great importance in physical science, including materials science, solid state physics and chemistry, geological sciences. Elastic constants such as Young’s modulus, Poisson’s ratio, bulk modulus and shear modulus have also been calculated. With the help of Elastic constants, the values longitudinal and transverse sound velocities also have been computed. Various studies of single layer stanene have been carried out to investigate the phonon properties and Phonon Density of States, however, other thermo physical properties such as heat capacity and Grüneisen parameter have been neglected. In this research paper, a comprehensive study on heat capacity and Grüneisen parameter is performed by Python program and all the above mention properties are equally important for engineering applications. Elastic and Thermo-Physical properties were calculated is agreed very close with the result of other researchers.
