Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) has been attracting much attentions due to its excellent electrical and optical properties. We report here the synthesis of large-scale and uniform MoS2 nanosheets with vertically standing morphology using chemical vapor deposition method. TEM observations clearly reveal the growth mechanism of these vertical structures. It is suggested that the vertical structures are caused by the compression and extrusion between MoS2 islands. More importantly, the vertical… CONTINUE READING
