Abstract：The successful isolation of two-dimensional (2D) graphene has stimulated research on a broad range of other 2D materials, among which layered transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have attracted particular attention. The semiconducting members of the TMD family including MoS2, MoSe2 and WSe2 have not only demonstrated many of the "graphene like" properties highly desirable for electronic applications such as a relatively high mobility, mechanical flexibility, chemical and thermal stability, and the absence of dangling bonds, but also have a substantial band gap (1 ~ 2 eV depending on the material and its thickness), which is absent in 2D graphene but required for mainstream logic applications. However, a major bottleneck in electronic applications of TMDs is their tendency to form a substantial Schottky/tunneling barrier with most electrode metals, which severely limits their performance. In this talk, I will discuss our recent work aiming to overcome this fundamental challenge and subsequently explore the intrinsic transport properties of TMDs.1-3
