A new method of producing Van der Waals heterostructures devices
Van der Waals heterostructures are assemblies of atomically thin, two-dimensional (2D) crystalline materials that display attractive optical, electronic and magnetic properties for use in advanced nanoelectronic devices. Most heterostructures are currently based on inorganic sandwich complexes, especially on graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides and hexagonal boron nitride. In addition, current vertical assembly methods limit these heterostructures to small-scale, proof-of-concept demonstrations. Funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, the 2DvdWHs project plans to develop a new generation of Van der Waals heterostructures through layer-by-layer assembly of monolayer 2D polymers with monolayer graphene for use in wafer-scale, flexible optoelectronics.
