Electronic Structure of Monolayer MoS2
Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) is a member of the transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) family of semiconductors. TMDs are layered materials weakly bounded through Van der Waals interactions, hence these materials can be exfoliated just like graphene. Monolayer TMDs exhibit very interesting electronic and mechanical properties and they are considered as promising candidates to post-silicon electronics. In this simulation we look at the electronic structure of single layer MoS2 and compare with the electronic band structure of bulk MoS2 (look at the post titled "Electronic Structure of Bulk MoS2").
