Description

Synthesis of New Class of 2D Alloy Materials for Photovaltaic Applications (ASUF 30006631) Synthesis of new class of 2D alloy materials for photovoltaic applications Layered semiconductors at the 2D quantum confined limit are emerging as an important new class of materials for optoelectronics and energy conversion technologies. While many conventional bulk semiconductors have been developed for these applications, only a small number of 2D semiconductors have been identified. This limits the choice of design parameters such as band gaps and band offsets available for implementing 2D materials in applications. In order to realize the full potential of 2D architectures, there is an urgent need to identify, produce and characterize new 2D alloyed semiconductors to attain properties that are not possible within currently available materials, and to develop fundamentally new physical understanding and engineering strategies. This research proposal seeks to develop 2D alloy materials to cover band gaps in the visible (1.0 eV to 3 eV) using novel synthesis techniques.
