Piezoelectricity in a 2-D semiconductor: Piezoelectricty in molybdenum disulfide holds promise for future MEMS

22 diciembre 2014

Researchers have opened the door to low-power off/on switches in micro-electro-mechanical systems, MEMS, and nanoelectronic devices, as well as ultrasensitive bio-sensors, with the first observation of piezoelectricity in a free standing two-dimensional semiconductor.
