ALD MoS2 project (sponsored by Sharp Labs of America):
From BALD Engineering, February 2016, "Oregon State present ALD of 2D alternate channel material MoS2 on 6 inch wafers" MoS2 is a two dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide material. With a direct bandgap of 1.8 eV when in monolayer morphology, it overcomes one of the limitations of graphene - the lack of a bandgap. The work demonstrates atomic layer deposition (ALD) of one to two monolayer MoS2 over 150 mm quartz and SiO2 patterned Si wafers. Applications such as an alternate channel material for MOS devices and catalysis applications are envisioned.
From Beneath the AVS Surface, April 2016, "Atomic Layer Deposition Shown to Produce Quality 2D Thin Films," In the latest issue of the Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology A, researchers at Oregon State University and Sharp Labs of America demonstrate how they were able to successfully use a technique known as atomic layer deposition (ALD) to deposit one to two monolayers of MoS2 on large area silicon and quartz substrates..."We found that we could consistently deposit a one-to-two monolayer 2DMoS2 film uniformly over a large surface area," Conley said. "Annealing the film in sulfur allowed us to see a strong photoluminescence peak, a hallmark of a monolayer material." .pdf
From OSU COE EECS Featured Stories, 4/27/16, "Blending electrical and chemical engineering," Making advances in two-dimensional semiconducting materials was beyond the scope of what Arturo Valdivia could imagine for himself when he was growing up in the small town of Nyssa in Eastern Oregon. But his first research project as a graduate student was not only published in the Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology A, but it was selected as the “Editor’s Pick” and was on the journal’s most read list. The article was also featured in Beneath the AVS Surface, a news publication for the American Vacuum Society... - .pdf
