Two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, especially the inorganic ultrathin nanosheets with single or few-atomic layers, have been extensively studied due to their special structures and rich physical properties coming from the quantum confinement of electrons. With atomic-scale thickness, 2D nanomaterials have an extremely high specific surface area enabling(More)
A surface hydrogen effect to modulate the pure electronic-state transition in perovskite Ca0.9 Yb0.1 MnO3 synergistically generates a more suitable eg electron filling status and better conductivity. This achieves 100 times higher catalytic activity compared to that of a pristine sample.
A new metallic 2D material with high electrical conductivity (1×10(3) S m(-1)) consists of VSe2 ultrathin nanosheets with 4-8 Se-V-Se atomic layers. This is the first 2D transition-metal dichalcogenide with intrinsic room-temperature ferromagnetism. The nanosheets increase the charge-density-wave transition temperature to 135 K by dimensional reduction.
As a conceptually new class of two-dimensional (2D) materials, the ultrathin nanosheets as inorganic graphene analogues (IGAs) play an increasingly vital role in the new-generation electronics. However, the relatively low electrical conductivity of inorganic ultrathin nanosheets in current stage significantly hampered their conducting electrode applications(More)
Ferromagnetic two-dimensional (2D) ultrathin nanosheets hold great promise for next generation electronics. Ferromagnetic metal-free materials that usually possess only an s/p electronic configuration with weak spin-orbit coupling and a large spin relaxation time, would play an important role in constructing future spintronic devices. However, the absence(More)
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS₂) ultrathin nanosheets, as a well-known inorganic two dimensional (2D) material with a graphene-like structure, has attracted tremendous attention due to its unique microscopic and macroscopic properties brought by the confinement of charge and heat transfer upon the basal plane. However, as the prototype Mott-insulator, its(More)
Protons, as one of the world's smallest ions, are able to trigger the charge effect without obvious lattice expansion inside inorganic materials, offering a unique and important test-bed for controlling their diverse functionalities. Arising from the high chemical reactivity of hydrogen (easily losing an electron) with various main group anions (easily(More)
The graphene system is actively pursued in spintronics for its nontrivial sp electron magnetism and its potential for the flexible surface chemical tuning of magnetoelectronic functionality. The magnetoresistance (MR) of graphene can be effectively tuned under high magnetic fields at cryogenic temperatures, but it remains a challenge to achieve sensitive(More)
We report an anionic solid solution process that induces frustrated magnetic structures within two-dimensional transition metal chalcogenides, which leads to huge negative magnetoresistance effects. Ultrathin nanosheets of TiTe(2-x)I(x) solid solutions, which are a new class of inorganic two-dimensional magnetic material, exhibit negative magnetoresistance(More)
Ferromagnetism is usually deemed incompatible with superconductivity. Consequently, the coexistence of superconductivity and ferromagnetism is usually observed only in elegantly designed multi-ingredient structures in which the two competing electronic states originate from separate structural components. Here we report the use of surface molecular(More)
