Nickel ditelluride (NiTe2), a new discovered type-II Dirac semimetal whose Dirac node lies close to its Fermi level, is expected to exhibit exotic phenomena including Lifshitz transition and superconductivity. As we know, defects are inevitable for transition metal dichalcogenides and have significant impacts on the optical and electronic properties. However, the systematic study of defects in NiTe2 is still lack. Here, by using high-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy combined with first…

Identifying Native Point Defects in the Topological Insulator Bi2Te3.

The results establish a bias-dependent STM signature of the Bi2Te3native defects and shed light on the link between the native defects and the electronic properties of Bi2 Te3, which is relevant for the synthesis of topological insulator materials and the related functional properties.

Visualization of point defects in ultrathin layered 1T-PtSe2

Among two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), platinum diselenide (PtSe2) stands at a unique place in the sense that it undergoes a phase transition from type-II Dirac semimetal

Intrinsic structural defects in monolayer molybdenum disulfide.

The atomic scale study of structural defects presented here brings new opportunities to tailor the properties of MoS2 via controlled synthesis and defect engineering.

Three-fold rotational defects in two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides

A new class of point defects in single-layer transition metal dichalcogenides that can be created through 60° rotations of metal–chalcogen bonds in the trigonal prismatic lattice are reported, with the simplest among them being a three-fold symmetric trefoil-like defect.

Imaging and identification of point defects in PtTe2

The properties and performance of two-dimensional (2D) materials can be greatly affected by point defects. PtTe 2 , a 2D material that belongs to the group 10 transition metal dichalcogenides, is a

Dimensional crossover and band topology evolution in ultrathin semimetallic NiTe2 films

Nickel ditelluride (NiTe 2 ), a recently discovered Type-II Dirac semimetal with topological Dirac fermions near the Fermi energy, is expected to exhibit strong thickness-mediated electronic

Engineering Point-Defect States in Monolayer WSe2.

An atomic engineering of the W vacancy in monolayer WSe2 by single potassium atom decoration shows that an unpaired electron donated by the K atom can lead to a local magnetic moment, exhibiting an on-off switching by the odd-even number of electron filling.

Tuning Electronic Structure of Single Layer MoS2 through Defect and Interface Engineering.

It is found that the substrates can tune the electronic energy levels in MoS2 due to charge transfer at the interface and the reduction state of CeO2 as an oxide substrate affects the interface charge transfer withMoS2.

Impact of intrinsic atomic defects on the electronic structure of MoS2 monolayers

This work examines possible defect structures and their impact on the MoS2 monolayer electronic properties, using density functional theory in combination with scanning tunneling microscopy to identify the nature of the most likely defects.

Defect induced, layer-modulated magnetism in ultrathin metallic PtSe2

Magneto-transport measurements on thin metallic crystals of the transition metal dichalcogenide PtSe2 show signatures of ferro- and antiferromagnetic order depending on the number of layers and first-principles calculations suggest Pt vacancies at the surface as a plausible cause of layer-dependent magnetism.
