Abstract

Application-oriented patterned growth of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) and their heterojunctions is of critical importance for sophisticated, customized two-dimensional (2D) electronic and optoelectronic devices; however, it is still difficult to fabricate these patterns in a simple, clean, and high controllability manner without using optical lithography. Here, we report the direct synthesis of patterned MoS 2 and graphene-MoS 2 heterojunctions via selective plasma treatment of a SiO 2 /Si substrate and chemical vapor deposition of MoS 2 . This method has multiple merits, such as simple steps, a short operating time, easily isolated MoS 2 layers with clean surfaces and controllable locations, shapes, sizes and thicknesses, which enable their integration into the device structure without using a photoresist. In addition, we demonstrate the direct growth of patterned graphene-MoS 2 heterojunctions for the fabrication of transistor. This study reveals a novel method to fabricate and use patterned MoS 2 and graphene-MoS 2 heterojunctions, which could be generalized to the rational design of other 2D materials, heterojunctions and devices in the future.
