We report a controllable wet method for effective decoration of 2-dimensional (2D) molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) layers with Au nanoparticles (NPs). Au NPs can be selectively formed on the edge sites or defective sites of MoS2 layers. The Au-MoS2 nano-composites are formed by non-covalent bond. The size distribution, morphology and density of the metal(More)
Tuning band energies of semiconductors through strain engineering can significantly enhance their electronic, photonic, and spintronic performances. Although low-dimensional nanostructures are relatively flexible, the reported tunability of the band gap is within 100 meV per 1% strain. It is also challenging to control strains in atomically thin(More)
We present a comprehensive Raman scattering study of monolayer MoS2 with increasing laser excitation energies ranging from the near-infrared to the deep-ultraviolet. The Raman scattering intensities from the second-order phonon modes are revealed to be enhanced anomalously by only the ultraviolet excitation wavelength 354 nm. We demonstrate theoretically(More)
