Jones Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, CA 94551 Abstract Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), such as MoS2, are known to undergo a structural phase transformation as well as a change in the electronic conductivity upon Li intercalation. These properties make them candidates for charge-tunable ion-insertion materials that could be used in electro-chemical devices. In this work we study the phase stability and electronic… Expand


Modeling the Metal–Insulator Phase Transition in LixCoO2for Energy and Information Storage
An electro-chemomechanical phase-field model is developed to capture the metal–insulator phase transformation along with the structural and chemical changes that occur in LixCoO2 in the regularExpand
Reversible and selective ion intercalation through the top surface of few-layer MoS2
It is demonstrated that in MoS2 flakes where the edges have been sealed, a reversible and ion-selective intercalation occurs through the top surface via the intrinsic defects, implying potential applications in developing functional 2D-material-based devices with high tunability and ion selectivity.

Origin of Structural Transformation in Mono- and Bi-Layered Molybdenum Disulfide
It is confirmed that, for the first time, electron transfer is dominant in initiating this structural transformation, and the results provide an in-depth understanding of the transformation mechanism induced by the electron doping. Expand
Ferroelasticity and domain physics in two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers
It is predicted that mechanical strain can switch the relative thermodynamic stability between the orientation variants of the 1T′ phase, and it is found that such strain-induced variant switching only requires a few percent elastic strain, which is eminently achievable experimentally with transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers.

Phase Transition of MoS2 Bilayer Structures
In the present study, using density functional calculations we have investigated a possible mechanism for the structural phase transition of the semiconducting bilayer 2H-MoS2 via lithiation. TheExpand
