In this paper, we investigate the effect of strain on silicene nanoribbon by using tight binding model.Using appropriate models for silicene, we apply a variable strain to Silicene nanoribbon and analyzed the impact of strain on the transfer characteristics of the silicene nanoribbon field effect transistor. Further, we compared the variations in off-state leakage current (IOFF) and the on-state drive current (ION) with variation in strain. It has been found that, as the strain increases the IOFFof the device decreases.
