Shallow donor in natural MoS2

Molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) has recently emerged as one of the most promising two-dimensional semiconductors. Impressive field-effect transistors, integrated circuits, phototransistors and sensors based on single and multilayers exfoliated from natural MoS2 have been demonstrated. However, the donor that gives rise to free carriers in the devices is still not known. Investigation of the electronic structure […]
