Researchers conduct a study to develop a highly scalable coating process by using the polymer-assisted deposition and apply thermolysis at a relatively low temperature without sulfurization. This process enables fine control of the precursor film, which leads to precise thickness control of the resulting molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) film. In addition, researchers also demonstrate the fabrication of a MoS2-based photodetector with a broad spectral response and excellent performance, as indicated by its fast response time. The synthesis includes the formation of a precursor−polymer complex thin film comprising anhydrous ammonium tetrathiomolybdate (ATM) precursor and linearpoly(ethylenimine) (L-PEI).
