Paper Abstract

Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) have become attractive candidates for 2D electronics and optoelectronics. While several concepts for light emitting devices have been reported, many of them realized using exfoliated TMDC flakes of micrometer size, only few approaches tackle the challenge of upscaling to relevant device sizes. We demonstrate a light emitting diode based on WS2 monolayers in a scalable design. The devices are fabricated by combining two industrially relevant deposition processes in a vertical p-n architecture: Metal organic CVD (MOCVD) is used to realize the optically active WS2 monolayers, while ZnO deposited by spatial atomic layer deposition (sALD) is employed as an electron injection layer on the cathode side. Organic layers spin-coated on an ITO covered glass substrate provide hole injection and transport. The resulting devices exhibit rectifying behavior and red electroluminescence from an area of 6 mm2.
