Novel active 2D semiconductors see the light
In a very short time, 2D semiconductors have stolen the stage from their 3D counterparts, enabling significant reductions in size thanks to their atomically thin channels that significantly reduce heat dissipation. Their outstanding electrical and optical properties hold great promise for tomorrow’s applications. Recently developed semiconducting 2D covalent organic frameworks (2D COFs) have exceptional properties, but they are currently passive and not responsive. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the LA2DCOFS project plans to change that by developing light-responsive 2D COF-based semiconductors harnessing the integration of light-responsive molecules.
