What is it about?

Advanced science and technology allow us to create and explore nanomaterials reaching noble applications and devices. One of the best nanomaterials are Transition-metal-dichalcogenide materials (TMDs) as comprehensive research proves their extraordinary properties, and potential for application in diverse fields. There are associated challenges related to the quality of grown material, grain size, and adaptiveness to a selected substrate, and chemical vapor deposition is considered the ideal technique in these regards. In this paper, we examined salt-assisted growth of two-dimensional TMDs to produce high-quality monolayered films on Si/SiO2, and multilayered films of MoS2 on fluorine-doped tin oxide. An empirical methodology was used to determine optimal conditions for sample growth. Factors such as precursor weights and ratios, temperature, and sulfurization were investigated with respect to preparing samples for exploitable applications.

Why is it important?

There are associated challenges related to the quality of grown material, grain size, and adaptiveness to a selected substrate, and chemical vapor deposition is considered the ideal technique in these regards, here we did more examination to salt-assisted growth of two-dimensional TMDs to produce high-quality monolayered films

Perspectives

this method of growth could open more doors for the growth of new nanomaterials or dope it.
