Abstract. In present study, structural, electronic, and optical absorption properties of two dimensional (2D) monolayer and bilayer CoO2 have been calculated by using the density functional theory. From the electronic band-structures of monolayer CoO2 and bilayer CoO2, these materials show metallic (conducting) behavior. The Optical absorption of monolayer and bilayer CoO2 begins from the infrared region to visible region and maximum absorption in ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Results suggest that the monolayer and bilayer CoO2 may be utilized for the optoelectronic applications and nano electronics.
