The generalized tight-binding model is developed to investigate the rich and unique electronic properties of AB-bt (bottom-top) bilayer silicene under uniform perpendicular electric and magnetic fields. The first pair of conduction and valence bands, with an observable energy gap, displays unusual energy dispersions. Each group of conduction/valence Landau levels (LLs) is further classified into four subgroups, i.e., the sublattice- and spin-dominated LL subgroups. The magnetic-field-dependent LL energy spectra exhibit irregular behavior corresponding to the critical points of the band structure. Moreover, the electric field can induce many LL anticrossings. The main features of the LLs are uncovered with many van Hove singularities in the density-of-states and nonuniform delta-function-like peaks in the magnetoabsorption spectra. The feature-rich magnetic quantization directly reflects the geometric symmetries, intralayer and interlayer atomic interactions, spin-orbital couplings, and field effects. The results of this work can be applied to novel designs of Si-based nanoelectronics and nanodevices with enhanced mobilities.
