MIT Researchers Build Electronic Components from Molybdenum Disulfide


MIT Research

Get in Touch with Molybdenum Disulfide:

Graphene is the new ingredient in creating one of the best electronic components. MIT Researchers who are working round the clock have found extra ordinary properties in Graphene which can ensure in delivering long lasting electronic circuit components. Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) which is present from years has been proving to be a boon for electronic circuits here back in the United States. Embedded electronics, glow walls or even built in display screens can be developed with the use of MoS2 which is widely available in the United States.

A report was created which was based on these newly designed electronic circuits and it was published, the author is Han Wang and Lili Yu, they are the graduates from Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. They are been guided by Tomas Palacios who is a professor of EECS of the MIT and other institutes elsewhere. He concludes that MoS2 and Graphene are newly found combinations which can actually create wonders when mixed, he also stated that they are two dimensional materials and “It’s the most exciting time for electronics in the last 20 or 30 years,” he says. “It’s opening up the door to a completely new domain of electronic materials and devices.”

2D form of graphite is then further broken down to form Graphene, in the list of industrial lubricant molybdenum disulfide has already been used for several years and it has delivered exceptional quality performance. Electronic sheets may be further formed with the use of this combination, as an investment measure it works out to be economical. The things coming out of the factory are memory circuits, transistors, and basic component of logic. He also stated that “you can turn it on, but you can’t turn it off. That means you can’t do digital logic.” The material is so transparent and very thin see, it can be planted on any other material without any problem, to give an example, MoS2 can be deposited on a glass which is producing display units, or even eyeglasses for viewing. It can be easily applied on window of an office or house; it does not undergo any sort of changes.

The entire research program was funded by US office of Naval Research, the Microelectronics Advanced Research Corporation Focus center for Materials and the National Science Foundation along with the Army Research Laboratory. The research was fruitful and did yield lots of information and new inventions. MIT has managed to grab the big picture as their main students and professors are behind this unique invention.
