The atomic structure at the interface between a two-dimensional (2D) and a three-dimensional (3D) material influences properties such as contact resistance, photo-response, and high-frequency performance. Moire engineering has yet to be explored for tailoring this 2D/3D interface, despite its success in enabling correlated physics at 2D/2D twisted van der Waals interfaces. Using epitaxially aligned MoS$_2$ /Au{111} as a model system, we apply a geometric convolution technique and four… Expand

Convergent beam electron holography for analysis of van der Waals heterostructures
Convergent beam electron holographic technique is presented which allows imaging of the stacking order in van der Waals heterostructures and allows one to reconstruct the relative rotation, stretching, and out-of-plane corrugation of the layers with atomic precision. Expand
Atomic and electronic reconstruction at the van der Waals interface in twisted bilayer graphene
An investigation of the structural and transport properties of bilayer graphene as a function of the twist angle between the layers reveals atomic-scale reconstruction for twist angles smaller than a critical value. Expand

Abstract Thin films of WS 2 have been grown by van der Waals epitaxy (vdWE) on the basal planes of 2H-MoTe 2 (0001). Despite a lateral mismatch of 10.3%, epitaxial growth is achieved by metal organicExpand
Gate-Tunable Semiconductor Heterojunctions from 2D/3D van der Waals Interfaces.
2D/3D heterojunctions using MoS2 as the prototypical 2D semiconductor laid upon Si and GaN as the 3D semiconductors layers are demonstrated and it is suggested that the interface quality does not necessarily affect Fermi-level tuning at the junction opening up possibilities for novel 2D/ 3D heter Mojunction device architectures.

Simultaneous Identification of Low and High Atomic Number Atoms in Monolayer 2D Materials Using 4D Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy.
Using 4D-STEM, surface adatoms on MoS2 monolayers are identified and atomic columns with similar total atomic number are separated into their relative combinations of low and high atomic number elements. Expand
Atomic reconstruction in twisted bilayers of transition metal dichalcogenides
Atomic-resolution transmission electron microscopy is used to reveal the lattice reconstruction in twisted bilayers of the transition metal dichalcogenides, MoS 2 and WS 2, showing that such reconstruction creates strong piezoelectric textures, opening a new avenue for engineering of 2D material properties.
