Synthesis of lateral heterostructures of transition-metal dichalcogenides via spatially-controlled alloying (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Hossein Taghinejad

Paper Abstract

Alloying of transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) has mostly been explored for rudimentary applications such as bandgap tuning and defect healing. To achieve more complex functionalities, we developed a modified approach based on specially-controlled alloying of atomically-thin TMDs [1, 2]. In this talk, we will discuss application of this modified technique for the synthesis of TMD lateral heterostructures with arbitrary shapes, arbitrary dimensions, and arbitrary band alignments. In addition, via accurate optical and electrical characterizations, we will discuss the prospect of these lateral heterostructures for applications in opto-electronic devices at nanoscale. [1] H.
