The emerging field of valleytronics, which exploits the momentum preference of excited electrons, or excitons, in a variety of optoelectronic devices, is closely tied to the fabrication of novel 2D materials just atoms thick. This month, a group of valleytronics researchers from Central South University in Changsha, China, have developed one such 2D material that significantly enhances the utility of these exciting particles.
The details of its fabrication and an elucidation of its properties are described in the journal Nano Research published on June 22. (DOI 10.1007/s12274-022-4580-3)
