Single-layer ‘super material’ semiconductor shows promise as novel light source

By Stephanie Liverani / October 28, 2016

Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (or TMDCs) are particularly promising single-layer materials. And researchers at the University of Würzburg in Germany say TMDCs are actually capable of generating light when supplied with energy.
