Graphene and silicene are currently attracting the interest of many researchers in the field of material science due to some unique material properties [1]. Graphene is also very advantageous in the field of electronics and telecommunication industries but zero band gap of graphene is really a problem to use it in electronic devices [2]. In this paper, we calculate the refractive index of silicon carbide (SiC) nanocomposite (a composite prepared by combining graphene and silicene). Since SiC nanocomposite possesses band gap and it has higher mechanical stability than existing silicon, it can be used in electronic devices.
