New work has potential to accelerate development of nanotechnology

Nanoscale technology has greatly improved our daily lives with products such as computers, phones, and solar cells. To develop the next-generation nanotechnology, new classes of materials need to be explored. Two-dimensional “valley semiconductors,” such as monolayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) and tungsten diselenide (WSe2), have remarkable properties and novel applications. When these materials absorb light, some...
