2D dichalcogenide electronic materials and devices


The discovery of graphene marked the start of research in 2D electronic materials which was expanded in new directions with MoS2 and other layered semiconducting materials. They have a wide range of promising potential applications, including those in digital electronics, optoelectronics and flexible devices. Combining 2D materials in heterostructures can increase their reach even further.

In my talk, I will briefly review our research in 2D materials beyond graphene which started with the realisation of the first transistor based on a 2D material other than graphene, a single layer of semiconducting MoS2. Next, I will present our recent work going in the direction of exploiting the valley degree of freedom for devices that may one day be interesting as an alternative to CMOS.
