2D Oxides for Electronics and Optoelectronics
In recent years, 2D oxides have attracted considerable attention due to their novel physical properties and excellent stability. With the efforts of researchers, significant progress has been made in


Centimeter-Scale Synthesis of Ultrathin Layered MoO3 by van der Waals Epitaxy
We report on the large-scale synthesis of highly oriented ultrathin MoO3 layers using a simple and low-cost atmospheric pressure, van der Waals epitaxy growth on muscovite mica substrates. By this
Disorder in van der Waals heterostructures of 2D materials
The progress in disorder control for graphene and TMDs is discussed, as well as in van der Waals heterostructures realized by combining these materials with hexagonal boron nitride.
Dielectric screening of excitons and trions in single-layer MoS2.
These findings are helpful to better understand the tightly bound exciton properties in strongly quantum-confined systems and provide a simple approach to the selective and separate generation of excitons or trions with potential applications in excitonic interconnects and valleytronics.
Van der Waals heterostructures
With steady improvement in fabrication techniques and using graphene’s springboard, van der Waals heterostructures should develop into a large field of their own.
Coulomb engineering of the bandgap and excitons in two-dimensional materials
By engineering the surrounding dielectric environment, one can tune the electronic bandgap and the exciton binding energy in monolayers of WS2 and WSe2 by hundreds of meV, as an initial step towards the creation of diverse lateral junctions with nanoscale resolution.
The hot pick-up technique for batch assembly of van der Waals heterostructures
The presented method readily lends itself to fabrication of van der Waals heterostructures in both ambient and controlled atmospheres, while the ability to assemble pre-patterned layers paves the way for complex three-dimensional architectures.

In the quest to discover the properties of planar semiconductors, two‐dimensional molybdenum trioxide and dichalcogenides have recently attracted a large amount of interest. This family, which
In-plane anisotropic optical and mechanical properties of two-dimensional MoO3
Molybdenum trioxide (MoO 3 ) in-plane anisotropy has increasingly attracted the attention of the scientific community in the last few years. Many of the observed in-plane anisotropic properties stem
Dielectric Engineering of Electronic Correlations in a van der Waals Heterostructure.
This work demonstrates how a capping layer of hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) renormalizes the internal structure of excitons in a WSe2 monolayer using intraband transitions and provides key insight into the effect of nonlocal screening on electron-hole correlations.
