New possibilities for future developments in electronic and optical devices have been unlocked by recent advancements in two-dimensional (2-D) materials, according to Penn State researchers.

The researchers, led by Shengxi Huang, assistant professor of electrical engineering and at Penn State, recently published the results of two separate but related discoveries regarding their success with altering the thin 2-D for applications in many optical and electronic devices. By altering the material in two different ways—atomically and physically—the researchers were able to enhance light emission and increase , expanding the bounds of what is possible with devices that rely on these materials.
