Mixed-dimensional van der Waals Schottky junctions between nanomaterials and conventional semiconductors

For most device applications of nanomaterials, interfaces and junctions play a significant role.  Mixed-dimensional van der Waals heterojunctions are formed by stacking materials with different dimensionality through non-covalent van der Waals interactions.  Heterojunctions between nanomaterials and conventional semiconductors combine the advantages of new nanoscale materials with those of well-established semiconductor technology.  As a result, investigating such heterojunctions provides important insights for the future integration of nanomaterials with silicon device technology. (Read sample publication)
