- Associate Professor Andre Mkhoyan and former CEMS graduate student Ryan Wu are part of a collaborative team that recently discovered a new way to achieve Van der Waals contacts between metal electrode and two-dimensional (2D) transition-metal dichalcogenides such as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). This allowed the team to reach one of the lowest metal contact resistances for three-dimensional metal electrodes evaporated onto MoS2, enabling high-performance field-effect transistor. The team was led by Professor Manish Chhowalla at University of Cambridge and includes collaborators from UNIST, California State Polytechnic University and Princeton University. The work titled “Van der Waals contacts between three-dimensional metals and two-dimensional semiconductors” was published in this week’s issue of Nature.
