Transition metal dichalcogenides heterostructures

The main focus of this project is to understand the physical properties of transition metal dichalcogenides monolayers and their heterostructures. Motivated by recent advances in experimental techniques that have made it possible to use these nanoscale materials in electronic and optoelectronic applications, the following important questions will be investigated within this research proposal by using state-of-the-art computation methods: 1) Which materials and/or contact architectures should be used in order to realize zero-resistance contacts for optoelectronic and nanoelectronic devices based on TMDs? 2) How do physical properties of TMD based quantum dots depend on shape and size?
