Kosch, Peter. Fabrication and Characterization of Layered Transition Metal Dichalcogenides. Poster session presented at the UNL Undergraduate Poster Session, Lincoln, NE. Spring 2016.
The goal of my research was to mechanically exfoliate single to few atomic layer samples of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2 ), Tungsten Diselenide (WSe2 ), and Tungsten Disulfide (WS2 ) and characterize these 2D materials by multiple methods. I used Atomic Force Microscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, and Optical Microscopy to accomplish this. In addition, I measured the electrical properties of the exfoliated materials by fabricating a device and taking basic measurements.
