IFE Distinguished Visitor Lecture

For more than a decade after the discovery of the unique physical properties of graphene, two-dimensional (2D) materials have been attracting the attention of the nanoscale research community and beyond. 2D materials can be stacked on top of the other, or be interfaced with organic molecules, and this leads to a paradigm shift in the way heterostructures can be artificially built.

In this talk, Professor Wee will introduce his group’s recent work in the use high-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy (STM/STS) to study the atomic structure and local electronic properties of 2D MoS2 and WSe2 monolayers on HOPG substrates, and show that the electronic bandgaps can be tuned by strain at grain boundaries and dislocations.
