Experimental demonstration of continuous electronic structure tuning via strain in atomically thin MoS2.
The continuous tuning of the electronic structure of atomically thin MoS2 on flexible substrates by applying a uniaxial tensile strain demonstrates the potential of two-dimensional crystals for applications in flexible electronics and optoelectronics.
Giant piezoelectricity of monolayer group IV monochalcogenides: SnSe, SnS, GeSe, and GeS
We predict enormous, anisotropic piezoelectric effects in intrinsic monolayer group IV monochalcogenides (MX, M=Sn or Ge, X=Se or S), including SnSe, SnS, GeSe, and GeS. Using first-principle
Field-induced polarization of Dirac valleys in bismuth
Multiple valleys in the electronic structure of certain crystal lattices could enable the development of so-called valleytronic devices. But to do so, the degeneracy of these valleys must be lifted.

Piezoelectricity of single-atomic-layer MoS2 for energy conversion and piezotronics
It is shown that cyclic stretching and releasing of thin MoS2 flakes with an odd number of atomic layers produces oscillating piezoelectric voltage and current outputs, whereas no output is observed for flakes with even number of layers, which may enable the development of applications in powering nanodevices, adaptive bioprobes and tunable/stretchable electronics/optoelectronics.
Strain-Induced Optimization of Nanoelectromechanical Energy Harvesting and Nanopiezotronic Response in a MoS2 Monolayer Nanosheet
Besides the intrinsic semiconducting direct band gap in monolayer MoS2 (ML-MoS2), piezoelectricity arises in it due to the broken inversion symmetry. This underscores the need to unveil the
