Electronics and optoelectronics of two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides.
This work reviews the historical development of Transition metal dichalcogenides, methods for preparing atomically thin layers, their electronic and optical properties, and prospects for future advances in electronics and optoelectronics.
High-yield production of graphene by liquid-phase exfoliation of graphite.
Graphene dispersions with concentrations up to approximately 0.01 mg ml(-1), produced by dispersion and exfoliation of graphite in organic solvents such as N-methyl-pyrrolidone are demonstrated.
Liquid phase production of graphene by exfoliation of graphite in surfactant/water solutions.
A method to disperse and exfoliate graphite to give graphene suspended in water-surfactant solutions and suggests the flakes to be largely free of defects and oxides, although X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy shows evidence of a small oxide population.
Two-Dimensional Nanosheets Produced by Liquid Exfoliation of Layered Materials
It is shown that WS2 and MoS2 effectively reinforce polymers, whereas WS2/carbon nanotube hybrid films have high conductivity, leading to promising thermoelectric properties.
Scalable production of large quantities of defect-free few-layer graphene by shear exfoliation in liquids.
It is shown that high-shear mixing of graphite in suitable stabilizing liquids results in large-scale exfoliation to give dispersions of graphene nanosheets in liquid volumes from hundreds of millilitres up to hundreds of litres and beyond.
High-concentration solvent exfoliation of graphene.
A method is demonstrated to prepare graphene dispersions at high concentrations, up to 1.2 mg mL(-1), with yields of up to 4 wt% monolayers that facilitates graphene processing for a range of applications.
Science and technology roadmap for graphene, related two-dimensional crystals, and hybrid systems.
An overview of the key aspects of graphene and related materials, ranging from fundamental research challenges to a variety of applications in a large number of sectors, highlighting the steps necessary to take GRMs from a state of raw potential to a point where they might revolutionize multiple industries are provided.
Silver Nanowire Networks as Flexible, Transparent, Conducting Films: Extremely High DC to Optical Conductivity Ratios.
These nanowire films are electromechanically very robust, with all but the thinnest films showing no change in sheet resistance when flexed over >1000 cycles, which makes these films ideal as replacements for indium tin oxide as transparent electrodes.
Two‐Dimensional Nanosheets Produced by Liquid Exfoliation of Layered Materials.
Layered compounds such as MoS2, WS2, MoSe2, TaSe2, NbSe2, NiTe2, BN, and Bi2Te3 are exfoliated by sonication of powders of the materials in a number of solvents with varying surface tensions and
