Plasma Assisted Surface Atomic Layer Substitution For Creating Janus 2D Materials


Abstract More recently there have been a tremendous advancement in theoretical studies showing remarkable properties that could be exploited from transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC) Janus crystals through various applications. These Janus crystals are having a proven intrinsic electrical field due to breaking of out-of-plane inversion symmetry in a conventional TMDC when one of the chalcogenides atomic layer is being completely replaced by a layer of different chalcogen element. However, due to lack of accurate processing control at nanometer scales, key for creating a highly crystalline Janus structure has not yet been familiarized. Thus, experimental characterization and implication of these Janus crystals are still in a state of stagnation. Th... (more)
