Ultrafast Charge Transfer in New Family of 2D Semiconductors Demonstrated

August 27th, 2014

Berkeley Lab reports the first experimental observation of ultrafast charge transfer in photo-excited MX2 materials, the graphene-like two-dimensional semiconductors. Charge transfer time clocked in at under 50 femtoseconds, comparable to the fastest times recorded for organic photovoltaics. More>
