"Electronic Structure of Epitaxial Single-Layer MoS2"

 Direct observation of the electronic structure of single layer-MoS2: The electronic structure of epitaxial single-layer MoS2 on Au(111) is investigated by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. The spin-orbit induced splitting of the otherwise degenerated upper valence band at  is observed as well as the conduction band minima for potassium-doped MoS2.

"Visualizing the stoichiometry of industrial-style Co-Mo-S catalysts with single-atom sensitivity"

Promoting a cleaner environment: An industrial-style Co-Mo-S catalyst were stoichiometrically analyzed at the single-atom level using electron microscopy methods at the SuperSTEM laboratory. Atom by atom, this first-ever analysis resolved single Co atom sites that is responsible for promoting S removal from oil distillates.

"Growth mechanism for single- and multi-layer MoS2 nanocrystals"

Understanding the how MoS2 nanocatalyst forms: The growth of MoS2 nanocrystals was monitored for the first time in situ using  in situ transmission electron microscopy. The findings explain why process parameters (such as temperature) can tune the relative fraction of single- and multi-layered MoS2 nanocrystals which is important for the use in hydrotreating reactions.

"Structure and Electronic Properties of In Situ Synthesized Single Layer MoS2 on a Gold Surface"

Growth and characterization of epitaxial, single layer MoS2 islands on Au(111): Epitaxial MoS2 islands on Au(111) were grown using physical vapor deposition in an H2S environment (10-6mbar). The moiré pattern resulting from the lattice mismatch and small relative rotation between the two materials was observed in STM as a hexagonal pattern of a 3.28 nm periodicity. From XPS it is concluded that MoS2 single layers on Au(111) overall retains structural and chemical properties of MoS2. Both XPS and STS indicate however a small modification in apparent bandgap size as a result of the underlying gold.
