Summary of "Impacts of interface contaminations on the MoS2 field effect transistors and a modified fabrication process to pursuit better interface quality."

The interface of the two-dimensional material plays a crucial role in the properties of the material itself. When 2D materials are used as channel for electrical devices, negative influence from surface contaminations during fabrication process should be avoided to ensure the device performance and the reliability. In this article, the impacts as well as its mechanisms of interface contaminations on MoS2 field effect transistors were studied. An effective method using an atomic layer deposition (ALD) grown Al2O3 dielectric layer to reduce exposure time of MoS2 during processing was introduced. Combine with annealing process, the fabricated MoS2 FETs with a Al2O3 protective layer demonstrate a high On/Off current ratio of 5Χ107, and a hysteresis of 80 mV in terms of decent reliability. Sulfur repair mechanism on MoS2/Al2O3 interface during annealing is revealed to explained the enhancement of devices performance. This method can also be adopted in other 2D materials, paving a path for the next generation flexible electronics application.

Food derived from genetically modified organisms (ORGANISMS, GENETICALLY MODIFIED).

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

Condition under normal Earth gravity where the force of gravity itself is not actually altered but its influence or effect may be modified and studied. (From ASGSB Bull 1992;5(2):27)

A homodimerization protein interaction domain occurring at the N terminus of proteins that contain multiple copies of either CYS2-HIS2 ZINC FINGERS or KELCH REPEATS. It is characterized by a tightly intertwined dimer with an extensive hydrophobic interface. A surface-exposed groove lined with conserved amino acids is formed at the dimer interface, suggesting a peptide-binding site. Many BTB proteins are transcriptional regulators that are thought to regulate CHROMATIN structure.
