2D layered materials: From materials properties to device applications
An overview of material properties and the current state of electronic devices based on 2D layered materials is presented. Atomic scale smoothness, varying band alignment and sizeable bandgaps in the single layer limit make this class of materials very interesting for optoelectronic applications. Scaling effects, doping techniques, contacts and strain engineering of 2D materials are discussed. In addition, important advancements in 2D material electronic devices, for example the all-2D field effect transistor (FET), heterojunction devices, and tunnel diode are highlighted.
