INTERVIEW: Is molybdenum disulfide the new graphene? – Prof. A.T.C Johnson (Part 1)

a.t.johnsonGraphene has long been regarded as a “wonder material”, but its use in a number of interesting practical applications has been held back by its poor performance as a semiconductor. This is because graphene does not have an energy band gap, unlike molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), another monolayer material. [Read more…]
