First flexible phosphorene transistors and radio demodulator in Nano Letters and highlighted in the news

The first flexible phosphorene transistors, circuits and radio demodulator was recently published in Nano Letters (March 2015) showing the highest mobilities among the 2D semiconductors and direct demodulation for wireless and radio communication applications.

Congratulations to Weinan and Maruthi that led the research.

The research article was highlighted by the online news media: nanotechweb, SPIE.





Monolayer and Multilayer MoS2 pressure dependent bandgap and phase transition published in nanoletters and nature communications

The pressure dependent properties of monolayer MoS2 was recently published in nanoletters (Dec 2014) showing up to 12% direct gap modulation, the highest experimental bandgap modulation observed so far.

Congratulations to the UT, IISc, Rutgers, and Kaust teams that collaborated intimately on this research.


Previously, we reported the high-pressure/strain studies on bulk MoS2 resulting in the observation of semiconducting to metallic phase transition in nature communications. Congrats to Avinash and our collaborators.
