Book Description :

Today's data-driven applications, such as big data analytics, neural networks, and machine learning, require huge memory and computing resources. The latency and energy incurred for data movement between processing unit and memory has become a significant limitation (known as the "memory wall") as traditional techniques such as caching are no longer effective for the data-intensive applications that dominate modern computing. Solving the "memory wall" problem requires future computer technology to directly integrate memory and transistor devices with high density vertical interconnect accesses (vias) to provide parallel, high bandwidth memory access. However, the high temperature of silicon processing is not compatible with this 3D monolithic integration. A desired low temperature integration can be achieved by using two-dimensional (2D) materials which have intrinsically layered and flat atomic structures, because devices made of 2D materials can be fabricated at lower temperatures. This thesis introduces three exploratory studies on advancing 2D materials for developing 3D monolithic integrated systems. First, I focused on improving transistor performance and studied high-mobility 2D material black phosphorous (BP) transistors using various metals as the contact metal. This work achieved unipolar n-type BP transistors by using ultra-low work function metals, demonstrating record high n-type current. Furthermore, the study revealed the physical mechanisms of controlling doping and de-pinning effects for n- and p- type BP transistors. Beyond transistor studies, I then demonstrated the first 3D sequential monolithic integrated two levels of 1-transistor-1-resistor (1T1R) memory cells. The cell is fabricated entirely using 2D materials: hexagonal-Boron Nitride (hBN) serves as the resistive switching memory cell and monolayer Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) serves as the channel material for the transistor selector. In order to achieve a high-density memory array, a two-terminal selector with a high nonlinear current-voltage characteristic is necessary. I developed a new two-terminal selector utilizing a 2D material heterostructure with an H-shape energy barrier. This new device design in theory should have high on-state current density and virtually unlimited endurance due to its quantum tunneling mechanism. Our results characterized the first out-of-plane current through an ultra-thin (3 monolayer) heterojunction and provide the critical foundation for a high endurance selector using a 2D heterojunction. Due to the transferable feature of 2D materials, these processes can be easily adopted for 3D monolithic integrated transistors and memories in multiple logic and memory layers connected vertically by fine-grained nanoscale vias, thereby overcoming the "memory wall.".

Book Description :

This book summarizes the current status of theoretical and experimental progress in 2 dimensional graphene-like monolayers and few-layers of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs). Semiconducting monolayer TMDCs, due to the presence of a direct gap, significantly extend the potential of low-dimensional nanomaterials for applications in nanoelectronics and nano-optoelectronics as well as flexible nano-electronics with unprecedented possibilities to control the gap by external stimuli. Strong quantum confinement results in extremely high exciton binding energies which forms an interesting platform for both fundamental studies and device applications. Breaking of spatial inversion symmetry in monolayers results in strong spin-valley coupling potentially leading to their use in valleytronics. Starting with the basic chemistry of transition metals, the reader is introduced to the rich field of transition metal dichalcogenides. After a chapter on three dimensional crystals and a description of top-down and bottom-up fabrication methods of few-layer and single layer structures, the fascinating world of two-dimensional TMDCs structures is presented with their unique atomic, electronic, and magnetic properties. The book covers in detail particular features associated with decreased dimensionality such as stability and phase-transitions in monolayers, the appearance of a direct gap, large binding energy of 2D excitons and trions and their dynamics, Raman scattering associated with decreased dimensionality, extraordinarily strong light-matter interaction, layer-dependent photoluminescence properties, new physics associated with the destruction of the spatial inversion symmetry of the bulk phase, spin-orbit and spin-valley couplings. The book concludes with chapters on engineered heterostructures and device applications such as a monolayer MoS2 transistor. Considering the explosive interest in physics and applications of two-dimensional materials, this book is a valuable source of information for material scientists and engineers working in the field as well as for the graduate students majoring in materials science.

Book Description :

This thesis demonstrates that layered heterostructures of two-dimensional crystals graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, and transition metal dichalcogenides provide new and interesting interlayer transport phenomena. Low-energy electron microscopy is employed to study the surface of atomically thin WSe2 prepared by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition on epitaxial graphene substrates, and a method for unambiguously measuring the number of atomic layers is presented. Using very low-energy electrons to probe the surface of similar heterostructures, a relationship between extracted work function differences from the layers and the nature of the electrical contact between them is revealed. An extension of this analysis is applied to surface studies of MoSe2 prepared by molecular beam epitaxy on epitaxial graphene. A large work function difference is measured between the MoSe2 and graphene, and a model is provided which suggests that this observation results from an exceptional defect density in the MoSe2 film. The thesis expounds a theory for computing tunneling currents between two-dimensional crystals separated by a thin insulating barrier; a few situations resulting in resonant tunneling and negative differential resistance are illustrated by computed examples, as well as observed characteristics, for monolayer and bilayer graphene tunneling junctions and transistors.

Book Description :

In the pursuit of further miniaturization beyond Moore's law, tremendous effort has been dedicated to exploring the potential of two-dimensional (2D) materials for nanoscale electronic devices. 2D materials are a group of solid state materials that possess strong in-plane covalent bonds while individual atomic layers are held together by weak van der Waals (vdW) interactions. Hence, their bulk crystals can be exfoliated into few-layer or even atomically thin single-layers via micro-mechanical exfoliation techniques. These materials possess unique and exotic properties due to quantum confinement of importance to future electronics. However, many technical problems need to be solved to realize this goal. For example, as 2D material based devices become smaller down to the nanometer scale, the electrical contacts must also be reduced in scale which creates different characteristics from those of macroscopic counterparts. In addition, there are issues of reliability and stability with devices comprised of such materials. There is a need to understand the electronic and chemical properties of several interfaces that arise in such materials: metal-2D and 2D-2D junctions, for example. To this end, this thesis focuses on understanding nanoscale metal-2D semiconductor (SC) and 2D SC-2D SC junctions exploring: (1) electronic and optoelectronic behavior at the nanoscale junction of metal-MoS2 and dependence on the layer number (thickness), (2) realization of voltage selectable photodiodes based on a lateral in-plane MoS2-WSe2 heterojunctions, and (3) interfacial properties and (opto)electronic characteristics of a phosphorene-MoS2 vertical vdW p-n junction. The first part of this thesis explores the layer number dependent electrical characteristics of the MoS2-metal nanoscale junction using current imaging of MoS2 nanosheets consisting of regions of varying different thicknesses using conductive and photoconductive spectral atomic force microscopy (C- and PCS-AFM). The layer number dependence of the effective barrier was measured, by obtaining consecutive current images while changing bias voltages, showing it to be linear. At the same time, spatially resolved two-dimensional (2D) maps of local electrical properties are generated from simultaneously recorded local current-voltage (IV) data. Furthermore, the layer number dependent spectral photoresponse of MoS2 is investigated, which shows the highest response in single layer (1L) region. The photoresponse decreases for increasing layer number, but increases again between 4L and 1 OL due to increased light absorption. The photoresponse is also strongly dependent on the wavelength of the incident light, showing much higher currents for photon energies that are above the optical bandgap. The photoresponse in forward and reverse biases shows barrier symmetry for 1 L but asymmetry for 2, 3, and 4L, which further indicates a dominant role of the barrier on carrier transport at the junction. The second part of this thesis investigates the spatially resolved transverse electrical properties of the monolayer WSe2 -MoS2 lateral p-n heterostructures at their nanoscale junctions with metals both in the dark and under laser illumination. As in the first part of the thesis, C- and PCS-AFM, versatile tools to conveniently and efficiently interrogate layer-dependent electronic and optoelectronic characteristics in a MoS2 crystal containing regions of different thicknesses, which enables direct characterization and comparison of the different layer regions without the complexities associated with fabricating and testing of different individual field-effect transistor devices, are used for measurements. By performing current imaging using a PtIr-coated conductive tip on an ultrathin nanosheet that includes homogeneous crystals of WSe2 and MoS2 and a lateral junction region in between, many thousands of WSe2/MoS2/the junction-metal contact points form during imaging and directly compare their local properties at the same time under identical experimental conditions with the nanoscale spatial resolution. The third part of this thesis explores a new type of 2D vertical heterostructures that simultaneously possess desirable properties of constituent materials, paving the path for overcoming intrinsic shortcomings of each component material to be used as an active material in nanoelectronic devices. As a first example, a MoS 2-graphene vertical heterostructure is constructed and its charge transfer and photoluminescence (PL) at the interface are investigated. C-AFM and Raman spectroscopy show that there is a significant charge transfer between the two component materials. The PL intensity of monolayer MoS2 is noticeably quenched when in contact with a single layered graphene in comparison to that of a bare monolayer MoS2 crystal. Then, with the acquired understanding of the underlying physics at the 2D vdW heterointerfaces, the possibility of a black phosphorus (BP)-MoS2 vertical heterostructure as an ultrathin channel material for high-performance 2D (opto)electronic devices is studied. CVD-synthesized MoS2 and micromechanically exfoliated BP crystals are stacked together to form a vertical p-n heterostructure. Optical microscopy, AFM images, and Raman spectroscopy data show that the MoS2 thin films can be used as a passivation layer, protecting BP from deteriorating in ambient conditions for extended period of time or under an elevated temperature in an Ar environment. The IV characteristics of FET devices based on the vertical heterostuctures exhibit that the MoS2 layer has limited impact on superior carrier transport properties of the BP in the dark. Upon light illumination, photoconductivity of the BP-MoS2 heterostructure region increased compared to that of the bare BP region of the same flake, mainly due to the fact that a built-in electric field formed at the BP-MoS2 interface facilitates the dissociation of electron-hole pairs generated by light absorption.

Book Description :

This thesis introduces a unique approach of applying atomic force microscopy to study the nanoelectromechanical properties of 2D materials, providing high-resolution computer-generated imagery (CGI) and diagrams to aid readers’ understanding and visualization. The isolation of graphene and, shortly after, a host of other 2D materials has attracted a great deal of interest in the scientific community for both their range of extremely desirable and their record-breaking properties. Amongst these properties are some of the highest elastic moduli and tensile strengths ever observed in nature. The work, which was undertaken at Lancaster University’s Physics department in conjunction with the University of Manchester and the National Physical Laboratory, offers a new approach to understanding the nanomechanical and nanoelectromechanical properties of 2D materials by utilising the nanoscale and nanosecond resolution of ultrasonic force and heterodyne force microscopy (UFM and HFM) – both contact mode atomic force microscopy (AFM) techniques. Using this approach and developing several other new techniques the authors succeeded in probing samples’ subsurface and mechanical properties, which would otherwise remain hidden. Lastly, by using a new technique, coined electrostatic heterodyne force microscopy (E-HFM), the authors were able to observe nanoscale electromechanical vibrations with a nanometre and nanosecond resolution, in addition to probing the local electrostatic environment of devices fabricated from 2D materials.
