The reproductive behavior of semi-wild and feral horses is described briefly in order to provide a background on the reproductive patterns and the specific behavioral elements comprising courtship and mating in the horse. The reproductive behavior of the domestic stallion is discussed at length as are various breeding conditions and normal breeding(More)
The development of low-resistance source/drain contacts to transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) is crucial for the realization of high-performance logic components. In particular, efficient hole contacts are required for the fabrication of p-type transistors with MoS2, a model TMDC. Previous studies have shown that the Fermi level of elemental metals is(More)
The effects of residues introduced during the transfer of chemical vapor deposited graphene from a Cu substrate to an insulating (SiO 2) substrate on the physical and electrical of the transferred graphene are studied. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy show that this residue can be substantially reduced by annealing in vacuum. The(More)
Using an ultrathin (∼ 15 nm in thickness) molybdenum oxide (MoOx, x < 3) layer as a transparent hole selective contact to n-type silicon, we demonstrate a room-temperature processed oxide/silicon solar cell with a power conversion efficiency of 14.3%. While MoOx is commonly considered to be a semiconductor with a band gap of 3.3 eV, from X-ray photoelectron(More)
MoOx shows promising potential as an efficient hole injection layer for p-FETs based on transition metal dichalcogenides. A combination of experiment and theory is used to study the surface and interfacial chemistry, as well as the band alignments for MoOx/MoS2 and MoOx/WSe2 heterostructures, using photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy,(More)
Covalent functionalization of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) is investigated for air-stable chemical doping. Specifically, p-doping of WSe(2) via NOx chemisorption at 150 °C is explored, with the hole concentration tuned by reaction time. Synchrotron based soft X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) depict(More)
