Tiny domes with novel optical properties open the door to innovative optoelectronics devices
Transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers are a class of atomically thin 2D nanosheets consisting of a transition metal and a chalcogen. They are of extreme interest for numerous applications because of their unique optoelectronic properties. However, to exploit these materials in commercial applications, we need reproducible and cost-effective manufacturing routes for large-scale production. The EU-funded SELENe project will tackle this important bottleneck by producing single-layer-thick domes from multilayer samples via hydrogen irradiation. These tiny exotic domes will then be characterised for their as yet unknown optical properties and potential application in high-tech optoelectronics structures.
