Modeling and Experimenting with 2D Materials for CMOS Type Devices and Digital Integrated Circuits

Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides have been proposed as novel optoelectronic materials for space applications due to their relatively light weight. MoS2 has been shown to have excellent semiconducting and photonic properties. Here, we report the effect of gamma irradiation on the structural and optical properties of a monolayer of MoS2.
