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 […]

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 […]
