Functional Electrical Contacts to Two-Dimensional Materials with Tunable Interfacial Oxides

Project description

Better electrical contacts could improve 2D material interfaces with the 3D world

Two-dimensional (2D) Van der Waals materials are promising for use in future nanoelectronic devices. However, their performance is often hampered by the presence of a large number of defects at the metal–2D material interface. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the ProTOC project will use atomic layer deposition (ALD) to engineer functional electrical contacts in 2D nanoelectronic devices. ALD-grown transition metal, vanadium and titanium oxides are explored as interfacial layers that are bonded to 2D molybdenum disulfide on one side and to the metal electrode on the other side. ADL allows precise control of the oxide composition to tune electronic properties such as work function, dielectric constant and defect concentrations.
