This project aims to explore key fundamental properties of atomically-thin layers of functional materials made of transition metal oxides and elemental semiconductors.
The fundamental insights gained from this project will serve as the driver for the next generation nanotechnology-enabled electronics systems. Results obtained from this project include a novel technique to synthesise layered MoS2 and the highest measured carrier mobility for exfoliated MoO3.
