SnSe (Tin Selenide)

SnSe SnSe is a semiconductor 2D material having a bandgap of ~1eV. The layers are stacked together via van der Waals interactions and can be exfoliated into thin 2D layers. To buy SnSe crystals please click here.

The SnSe crystals produced at HQ Graphene have a typical lateral size of ~0.6-0.8cm and have a metallic appearance. More information about the SnSe crystals we sell can be found below.
