The electronic properties of ultrathin crystals of molybdenum disulfide consisting of N=1,2,…,6 S-Mo-S monolayers have been investigated by optical spectroscopy. Through characterization by absorption, photoluminescence, and photoconductivity spectroscopy, we trace the effect of quantum confinement on the material's electronic structure. With decreasing thickness, the indirect band gap, which lies below the direct gap in the bulk material, shifts upwards in energy by more than 0.6 eV. This… Expand
Electronic structure of a quasi-freestanding MoS₂ monolayer.
TLDR
This work demonstrates how an electronic structure characteristic of the isolated monolayer can be created at the surface of a bulk MoS2 crystal by intercalating potassium in the interlayer van der Waals gap, expanding its size while simultaneously doping electrons into the conduction band. Expand
Direct observation of the layer-dependent electronic structure in phosphorene.
TLDR
It is experimentally demonstrated that the electronic structure of few-layer phosphorene varies significantly with the number of layers, in good agreement with theoretical predictions, and the interband optical transitions cover a wide, technologically important spectral range. Expand

Electronic Structure and Luminescence of Quasi-Freestanding MoS2 Nanopatches on Au(111)
TLDR
This work grows single layers of MoS2 on Au(111) and finds that nanometer-sized patches exhibit an electronic structure similar to their freestanding analogue, ascribing the electronic decoupling from the Au substrate to the incorporation of vacancy islands underneath the intactMoS2 layer. Expand
Two-dimensional stanane: strain-tunable electronic structure, high carrier mobility, and pronounced light absorption.
TLDR
According to the computational results, stanane is semiconducting with a direct band gap of 1.00 eV, which can be flexibly tuned by applying an external strain, and has much higher electron and hole mobilities than those of a MoS2 monolayer at room temperature. Expand

TLDR
From band-structure calculations it is shown that MoSe2, MoS2, and WSe2 are indirect-gap semiconductors, and the wave function at the top of the valence band is shown to be a metal-nonmetal antibonding state, which explains the observed high stability of these materials in photoelectrochemical cells against photocorrosion.
