Graphene competitor molybdenum disulfide easier to make February 20, 2015Graphene competitor molybdenum disulfide easier to make A potential replacement for silicon, graphene is a single-atom-thick lattice of carbon atoms that features high conductivity and is essentially 2D. However, it is not the only 2D material that could replace silicon, there is competition — molybdenum disulfide — which unlike graphene has an energy band gap, meaning its conductivity can be turned on and off. Such a trait is critical for semiconductor devices used in computing.
