Group-10 transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are rising in prominence within the highly innovative field of 2D materials. While PtS2 has been investigated for potential electronic applications, due to its high charge-carrier mobility and strongly layer-dependent bandgap, it has proven to be one of the more difficult TMDs to synthesise. In contrast to most TMDs, Pt has a significantly more stable monosulfide, the non-layered PtS. The existence of two stable platinum sulfides, sometimes…

Synthesis and thermal stability of TMD thin films: A comprehensive XPS and Raman study

Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have been a core constituent of 2D material research throughout the last decade. Over this time, research focus has progressively shifted from synthesis and

Broadband Optical Properties of Atomically Thin PtS2 and PtSe2

The broadband (245–3300 nm) optical constants of ultrathin PtS2 and PtSe2 films are measured to eliminate this gap and provide a foundation for optoelectronic device simulation and discover their broadband absorption and high refractive index both theoretically and experimentally.



Low-temperature synthesis and electrocatalytic application of large-area PtTe2 thin films

This study shows while PtTe2 is stable and highly useful for in HER, this property does not apply to ORR, which undergoes a fundamentally different mechanism, which broadens the knowledge on the electrocatalysis of TMDs.

Strategy for Fabricating Wafer-Scale Platinum Disulfide.

This work uses a specified quartz part to locally increase the vapor pressure of sulfur in a chemical vapor deposition furnace and successfully extends this method for the synthesis of PtS2 thin films in a scalable and controllable manner, and shows their promise for high-performance ultrasensitive gas sensing, broadband optoelectronics, and nanoelectronic in a scaled manner.

Synthesis of large-scale few-layer PtS2 films by chemical vapor deposition

PtS2, a group-10 transition metal dichalcogenide, has prominent layer-depended band structure, and can enable extremely high phonon-limited mobility at room temperature. Here, we demonstrate the

Layered Crystalline and Amorphous Platinum Disulfide (PtS2 ): Contrasting Electrochemistry.

In this work, layered crystalline and amorphous platinum disulfide (PtS2) were synthesized, characterised and their fundamental electrochemical properties were investigated, found to exhibit superior electrocatalytic performances towards oxygen reduction (ORR) and hydrogen evolution reactions (HER) as compared to crystalline PtS2.

Thickness dependent electronic properties of Pt dichalcogenides

Platinum-based transition metal dichalcogenides have been gaining renewed interest because of the development of a new method to synthesize thin film structures. Here, using first-principles

Temperature dependence of Raman responses of few-layer PtS2

The temperature-dependent Raman spectra on PtS2 with different thicknesses are studied for the first time, and it is found that with the temperature increase from 80 to 298 K, the [Formula: see text] and [Form formula] modes of all samples show linear softening.
