Hydrogen Addition for Centimeter-Sized Monolayer Tungsten Disulfide Continuous Films by Ambient Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition
Monolayer tungsten disulfide (WS2) offers great prospects for use in optoelectronic devices due to its direct bandgap and high photoluminescence intensity. Here, we show how the controlled addition of hydrogen into the chemical vapor deposition growth of WS2 can lead to the formation of centimeter scale continuous monolayer films at ambient pressure without the need for seed molecules, specially prepared substrates, or low pressure vacuum systems. Modifications of the reaction conditions, including growth time and hydrogen to argon ratio, allow for control over the domain size, film coverage, and film uniformity of the prepared WS2 film. The combined control of hydrogen and a double-furnace system enables an increases in the growth rate of WS2, which results in fully merged films with cm2 coverage and reduced multilayer content. Field effect transistors are fabricated to demonstrate that WS2 has high quality for electronic applications. Our ambient pressure chemical vapor deposition reaction is simple and...

We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
