Atomic Engineering of Molybdenum Disulfide for Ultra-Scaled Electronics

Project Description

Atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) crystals are emerging as next generation electronic materials in
nanoelectronics. However, no reliable fabrication techniques currently exist at the targeted sub-10nm scale and
basic scientific investigation of the operation of these ultimately small devices is needed. The aim of this proposal
is to engineer atomic-scale electronic devices with scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) by locally inducing a
structural phase-transition in molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). This innovative approach will allow to investigate the
physics of atomic-scale electronic devices beyond the end of the technology roadmap and explore entirely new
device concepts and functionalities for future quantum electronics.
