Synthesis of 2D Materials
WITH Top down exfoliation
Keywords : Graphene, Nanotechnology, Layer Separation
"Top-down exfoliation" is a critical technique for creating 2D materials by separating bulk substances into thinner layers. This method involves mechanically or gradually breaking down thicker materials, creating thin layers at the molecular level. It's crucial in producing 2D materials like graphene and plays a significant role in controlled production of unique 2D materials with distinct properties in nanotechnology and materials research.
Synthesis of 2D materials with Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD)
Keywords : Transition metal dichalcogenides, Phase-control, Thin layer film, Device
Recently, 2D materials have received significant research interest due to their unique physicochemical, optical, and magnetic properties. In particular, Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs) exhibit outstanding performance in electronics, catalysis, batteries, and various devices, indicating a high potential for practical applications. Among the methods for synthesizing 2D materials, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) stands out for its ability to induce gas-phase reactions, minimizing solvent waste and enabling the synthesis of thin layers compared to other synthetic methods.
