Anisotropic interlayer coupling in atomically thin ReS2

Atomically thin transition-metal-dichalcogenides (TMDCs) have recently attracted a lot of research interest. Like graphene, they can be prepared as two-dimensional crystals by exfoliation. Unlike graphene, they are semiconductors with large band gaps, which make them interesting for potential optoelectronic device applications. While TMDCs based on group-VI metals like Molybdenum and Tungsten, such as MoS2 and […]
