2D Semiconductors

2D materials have gained significant scientific and industrial attention since the demonstration of the novel properties of graphene. Different synthesis and assembly routes allow us to study novel inherent material’s characteristics [1, 2] as well as to tailor properties for a range of applications such as sensors or photodetectors [3-5]. Through highly interdisciplinary collaborations, we employ various syntheses including micromechanical and electrochemical exfoliation as well as thermally facilitated growth techniques. Our research fields are:

  • Mono-/bi-/few-layer 2D (semi)conductors with defined properties
  • Scale-bridge investigation of properties and defects (OM, Raman (micro)spectroscopy, SEM & TEM)
  • Material integration into devices and testing for novel properties

For mechanical exfoliation and device assembly, we utilize an advanced setup for dry stamping (see picture gallery, LMN equipment). Currently, we are developing an automated exfoliation tool to enhance the reliability of the mechanical procedure and the quality of the obtained 2D crystals.
