Photonics and optoelectronics of 2D semiconductor transition metal dichalcogenides
The electronic and optical properties and the recent progress in applications of 2D semiconductor transition metal dichalcogenides with emphasis on strong excitonic effects, and spin- and
Spin and pseudospins in layered transition metal dichalcogenides
Understanding the physics of two-dimensional materials beyond graphene is of both fundamental and practical interest. Recent theoretical and experimental advances uncover the interplay between real
One Million Percent Tunnel Magnetoresistance in a Magnetic van der Waals Heterostructure.
The observed very large negative magnetoresistance effect in a van der Waals tunnel junction incorporating a thin magnetic semiconductor, CrI3, as the active layer elucidate the nature of the magnetic state in ultrathin CrI2 and present new opportunities for spintronics based on two-dimensional materials.
Enhanced magnetoresistance in layered magnetic structures with antiferromagnetic interlayer exchange.
The electrical resistivity of Fe-Cr-Fe layers with antiferromagnetic interlayer exchange increases when the magnetizations of the Fe layers are aligned antiparallel. The effect is much stronger than
Very large tunneling magnetoresistance in layered magnetic semiconductor CrI3
Large tunneling magnetoresistance is reported through exfoliated CrI3 crystals and its evolution is attributed to the multiple transitions to different magnetic states, demonstrating the presence of a strong coupling between transport and magnetism in magnetic van der Waals semiconductors.
Giant magnetoresistance of (001)Fe/(001)Cr magnetic superlattices.
This work ascribes this giant magnetoresistance of (001)Fe/(001)Cr superlattices prepared by molecularbeam epitaxy to spin-dependent transmission of the conduction electrons between Fe layers through Cr layers.
Dichroic spin–valley photocurrent in monolayer molybdenum disulphide
It is demonstrated that large photocurrent dichroism can also be achieved in high-quality molybdenum disulphide monolayers grown by chemical vapour deposition, due to the circular photogalvanic effect on resonant excitations.
Photo-spin-voltaic effect
A light-induced spin voltage is demonstrated that arises from a spin-dependent excitation and diffusion of photo-excited electrons near heavy-metal/magnetic-insulator interfaces.
Layer-dependent ferromagnetism in a van der Waals crystal down to the monolayer limit
Since the discovery of graphene, the family of two-dimensional materials has grown, displaying a broad range of electronic properties. Recent additions include semiconductors with spin–valley
Exfoliation and Raman Spectroscopic Fingerprint of Few-Layer NiPS3 Van der Waals Crystals
The first successful isolation of monolayer and few-layer samples of the compound nickel phosphorus trisulfide (NiPS3) by mechanical exfoliation is reported, providing a spectral fingerprint for distinct layer numbers, allowing a sensitive and convenient means for layer number determination.
