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 :

At the nanoscale, new forms of physical phenomena emerge that can provide remarkable opportunities for next-generation tools with unprecedented functionality and energy efficiency. Two-dimensional (2D) materials, a family of nanomaterials with atomic thickness, promise an ideal platform for nanoscience and nanotechnology research on which we are able to engineer functional structures and study their properties at the limit of the atomic scale. This thesis discusses opportunities and challenges of studying emerging light-matter interaction phenomena and developing advanced infrared detection technologies enabled by 2D materials and their heterostructures. First, we addressed some of the key challenges for reliable synthesis and characterization of 2D materials and functional nanostructures. We developed a new seeding-promoter-assisted chemical vapor deposition approach for the construction of vertical and lateral heterostructures between a variety of 2D materials over large area. This technology enables many new physics and device applications, including 1D ohmic contacts to 2D semiconductors and their integrated circuits. Another material-related challenge we addressed is the fast material characterization of 2D materials. We developed a deep learning algorithm that can perform realtime, accurate material identification on optical microscope images of 2D materials. In addition, our method is able to extract deep graphical features and provide information about structural, optical and mechanical properties of the materials. Second, we studied three novel IR detector technologies based on 2D materials and other nanostructures that can potentially out-perform the state-of-the-art graphene thermopile, graphene-2D semiconductor photothermoelectric detector, and thermo-mechanical bolometer. For the graphene thermopile, our theoretical analysis indicates that a high-quality graphene device provides the highest thermoelectric figure of merit among existing thermoelectric materials. We further demonstrated a monolithic 3D integration of graphene and Si CMOS technologies and fabricated a mid-IR/thermal imaging camera based on graphene thermopiles. For the second IR detection technology, we studied the unique hot carrier thermalization process on a graphene-2D semiconductor lateral heterojunction device, and showed that such a photothermoelectric photocurrent generation mechanism is advantageous in terms of picosecond response time, broadband spectral response, and room temperature operation. The third IR detection technology we demonstrated in this thesis is a thermo-mechanical bolometer, in which the IR radiation is converted into an abrupt resistance change through the special thermo-mechanical response and an artificial metal-insulator transition of engineered nanostructures. Our results show that the sensitivity of this thermo-mechanical mid-IR detector can be at least one order of magnitude better than state-of-the-art microbolometers based on VOx.

Book Description :

This book focuses on angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy studies on novel interfacial phenomena in three typical two-dimensional material heterostructures: graphene/h-BN, twisted bilayer graphene, and topological insulator/high-temperature superconductors. Since the discovery of graphene, two-dimensional materials have proven to be quite a large “family”. As an alternative to searching for other family members with distinct properties, the combination of two-dimensional (2D) materials to construct heterostructures offers a new platform for achieving new quantum phenomena, exploring new physics, and designing new quantum devices. By stacking different 2D materials together and utilizing interfacial periodical potential and order-parameter coupling, the resulting heterostructure’s electronic properties can be tuned to achieve novel properties distinct from those of its constituent materials. This book offers a valuable reference guide for all researchers and students working in the area of condensed matter physics and materials science.

The 2001 Spring Meeting of the 65th Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft was held together with the 65. Physikertagung, in Hamburg, during the pe riod March 26 30 2001. With more than 3500 conference attendees, a record has again been achieved after several years of stabilisation in participation. This proves the continuing and now even increasing, attraction of solid state physics, especially for young colleagues who often discuss for the first time their scientific results in public at this meeting. More than 2600 scientific pa pers were presented orally, as well as posters, among them about 120 invited lectures from Germany and from abroad. This Volume 41 of "Advances in Solid State Physics" contains the written versions of half of the latter. We nevertheless hope that the book truly reflects the current state of the field. Amazingly enough, the majority of the papers as well as the discussions at the meeting, concentrated on the nanostructured solid state. This re flects the currently extremely intensive quest for developing the electronic and magnetic device generations of the future, which stimulates science be sides the challenge of the unknown as has always been the case since the very beginning of Solid State Physics about 100 years ago.

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 :

From the Introduction: Nanotechnology and its underpinning sciences are progressing with unprecedented rapidity. With technical advances in a variety of nanoscale fabrication and manipulation technologies, the whole topical area is maturing into a vibrant field that is generating new scientific research and a burgeoning range of commercial applications, with an annual market already at the trillion dollar threshold. The means of fabricating and controlling matter on the nanoscale afford striking and unprecedented opportunities to exploit a variety of exotic phenomena such as quantum, nanophotonic and nanoelectromechanical effects. Moreover, researchers are elucidating new perspectives on the electronic and optical properties of matter because of the way that nanoscale materials bridge the disparate theories describing molecules and bulk matter. Surface phenomena also gain a greatly increased significance; even the well-known link between chemical reactivity and surface-to-volume ratio becomes a major determinant of physical properties, when it operates over nanoscale dimensions. Against this background, this comprehensive work is designed to address the need for a dynamic, authoritative and readily accessible source of information, capturing the full breadth of the subject. Its six volumes, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines including material sciences, chemistry, physics and life sciences, have been written and edited by an outstanding team of international experts. Addressing an extensive, cross-disciplinary audience, each chapter aims to cover key developments in a scholarly, readable and critical style, providing an indispensible first point of entry to the literature for scientists and technologists from interdisciplinary fields. The work focuses on the major classes of nanomaterials in terms of their synthesis, structure and applications, reviewing nanomaterials and their respective technologies in well-structured and comprehensive articles with extensive cross-references. It has been a constant surprise and delight to have found, amongst the rapidly escalating number who work in nanoscience and technology, so many highly esteemed authors willing to contribute. Sharing our anticipation of a major addition to the literature, they have also captured the excitement of the field itself in each carefully crafted chapter. Along with our painstaking and meticulous volume editors, full credit for the success of this enterprise must go to these individuals, together with our thanks for (largely) adhering to the given deadlines. Lastly, we record our sincere thanks and appreciation for the skills and professionalism of the numerous Elsevier staff who have been involved in this project, notably Fiona Geraghty, Megan Palmer and Greg Harris, and especially Donna De Weerd-Wilson who has steered it through from its inception. We have greatly enjoyed working with them all, as we have with each other.

This book is a comprehensive introduction to nanoscale materials for sensor applications, with a focus on connecting the fundamental laws of physics and the chemistry of materials with device design. Nanoscale sensors can be used for a wide variety of applications, including the detection of gases, optical signals, and mechanical strain, and can meet the need to detect and quantify the presence of gaseous pollutants or other dangerous substances in the environment. Gas sensors have found various applications in our daily lives and in industry. Semiconductive oxides, including SnO2, ZnO, Fe2O3, and In2O3, are promising candidates for gas sensor applications. Carbon nanomaterials are becoming increasingly available as “off-the-shelf” components, and this makes nanotechnology more exciting and approachable than ever before. Nano-wire based field- effect transistor biosensors have also received much attention in recent years as a way to achieve ultra-sensitive and label-free sensing of molecules of biological interest. A diverse array of semiconductor-based nanostructures has been synthesized for use as a photoelectrochemical sensor or biosensor in the detection of low concentrations of analytes. A novel acoustic sensor for structural health monitoring (SHM) that utilizes lead zirconate titanate (PZT) nano- active fiber composites (NAFCs) is described as well.
