Band structure engineering in a MoS2/PbI2 van der Waals heterostructure via an external electric field.

Abstract

Band structure engineering in a MoS2/PbI2 van der Waals (vdW) heterostructure under an external electric field (Efield) is investigated using density functional theory (DFT). It is demonstrated that the MoS2/PbI2 vdW heterostructure has a type-II heterojunction with a direct bandgap, and thus the lowest energy electron-hole pairs are spatially separated… (More)
