Iron pyrite (FeS2) is considered a promising earth-abundant semiconductor for solar energy conversion with the potential to achieve terawatt-scale deployment. However, despite extensive efforts and progress, the solar conversion efficiency of iron pyrite remains below 3%, primarily due to a low open circuit voltage (VOC). Here we report a comprehensive(More)
We report the first coherent multidimensional spectroscopy study of a MoS2 film. A four-layer sample of MoS2 was synthesized on a silica substrate by a simplified sulfidation reaction and characterized by absorption and Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. State-selective coherent multidimensional spectroscopy(More)
High-quality metal halide perovskite single crystals have low defect densities and excellent photophysical properties, yet thin films are the most sought after material geometry for optoelectronic devices. Perovskite single-crystal thin films (SCTFs) would be highly desirable for high-performance devices, but their growth remains challenging, particularly(More)
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is a two-dimensional material promising for electronic, optical, and catalytic applications. To fully harness its potential, functionalization is essential to controlling its properties. However, MoS2 functionalization has been mostly limited to either 1T-phase MoS2 or the edges of 2H-phase MoS2, and the chemistry of covalent(More)
