The structure of tungsten disulfide is a hexagonal layered structure with excellent electrical properties.
Electrical Properties of Tungsten Disulfide
In tungsten disulfide, the interaction between the W atoms in the layer and the surrounding S atoms is strong, and the interaction between the tungsten disulfide layer and the layer is weak.
The thermal stability of two tungsten sulfide is stronger than that of molybdenum disulfide. The temperature range is wide, and it is not easy to decompose. Oxidation occurs at 539 degrees centigrade. Therefore, tungsten disulfide is an excellent semiconductor material for indirect bandgap semiconductors. When the thickness of tungsten disulfide is reduced to a single layer, it changes into a direct band gap, which means that tungsten disulfide can effectively pass through the bandgap transition absorb or emit photons. The band gap of monolayer tungsten disulfide is about 2eV. This electrical performance characteristic is the main advantage of tungsten disulfide in semiconductor tubes, transistor applications that can go beyond graphene.
In fact, graphene has a very important defect in the field of semiconductors, which is the lack of band gap between electrons. In theory, graphene has very high mobility electrons that allow it to process data at very high rates, although it's very fast, there's no electron gap, and it's hard to turn it off once it starts to transmit data, this seriously hinders the logical operation, because all the problems in logic operations are open and close. While the two tungsten sulfide with planar high current switch, a higher than the mobility and the effective conductivity modulation performance, there is no logic problem, which can completely replace graphene in transistors, lighting diodes and optical sensors and other devices. The future, even now produce more than 100 times the calculation function of CPU, the use of the material is probably two tungsten sulfide.
In addition, tungsten disulfide also has a very strong photoluminescence properties, can replace the traditional transparent electrode materials and graphene, as a liquid crystal display, touch screen, solar cells and other equipment, transparent electrodes, with the addition of tungsten disulfide, the future of such equipment or will have a folding function.
