Abstract

We describe a method for synthesizing large-area and uniform molybdenum disulfide films, with control over the layer number, on insulating substrates using a gas phase sulfuric precursor (H2S) and a molybdenum metal source. The metal layer thickness was varied to effectively control the number of layers (2 to 12) present in the synthesized film. The films were grown on wafer-scale Si/SiO2 or quartz substrates and displayed excellent uniformity and a high crystallinity over the entire area. Thin film transistors were prepared using these materials, and the performances of the devices were tested. The devices displayed an on/off current ratio of 105, a mobility of 0.12 cm2 V-1 s-1 (mean mobility value of 0.07 cm2 V-1 s-1), and reliable operation.
