Substitutional doping of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) may provide routes to achieving tunable p-n junctions, bandgaps, chemical sensitivity, and magnetism in these materials. In this study, we demonstrate in situ doping of monolayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) with manganese (Mn) via vapor phase deposition techniques. Successful incorporation of(More)
Gas-phase ligand exchange reactions between M(acac)(2) and M(hfac)(2) species, where M is Cu(II) and/or Ni(II), were observed to occur in a double-focusing reverse-geometry magnetic sector mass spectrometer. The gas-phase mixed ligand product, [M(acac)(hfac)](+), was formed following the co-sublimation of either homo-metal or hetero-metal precursors. The(More)
The gas-phase ligand-exchange reactions between Cu(II) and Ni(II) complexes containing the acetylacetonate (acac), hexafluoroacetylacetonate (hfac), and trifluorotrimethylacetylacetonate (tftm) ligands were investigated using a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The gas-phase mixed-ligand products of [Cu(acac)(tftm)](+), [Ni(acac)(tftm)](+),(More)
Molecular depth profiling of multilayer organic films is now an established protocol for cluster secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). This unique capability is exploited here to study the ionization mechanism associated with matrix-enhanced SIMS and possibly matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI). Successful depth profiling experiments were(More)
Strong field ionization (SFI) was applied for the secondary neutral mass spectrometry (SNMS) of patterned rubrene films, mouse brain sections, and Botryococcus braunii algal cell colonies. Molecular ions of rubrene, cholesterol, C31 diene/triene, and three wax monoesters were detected, representing some of the largest organic molecules ever ionized intact(More)
A novel approach to elucidate the ionization mechanism for the [M + H]+ molecular ion of organic molecules is investigated by molecular depth profiling of isotopically enriched thin films. Using a model bi-layer film of phenylalanine (PHE) and PHE-D8, the results show formation of an [M + D]+ molecular ion for the non-enriched PHE molecule attributed to(More)
Two and three-dimensional (2D/3D) hybrid materials have the potential to advance communication and sensing technologies by enabling new or improved device functionality. To date, most 2D/3D hybrid devices utilize mechanical exfoliation or post-synthesis transfer, which can be fundamentally different from directly synthesized layers that are compatible with(More)
