Image of the week: strain and molybdenum disulphide

For some time, graphene has been touted as a wonder material. Unfortunately, having no bandgap means it isn’t the best candidate material for electronic applications. Comparatively, molybdenum disulphide, (MoS2) — part of the family of transition metal dichalcogenides — has a non-zero bandgap, making it a 2D material with potential application in future electronic devices.

Getting set for CSW 2015!

As a newer member of JPhysD’s editorial team I am excited to say that I, along with JPhysD’s publisher Tom Miller, will soon be headed to the sunny shores of California for Compound Semiconductor Week (CSW) 2015 in Santa Barbara.
