The direct-to-indirect band gap crossover in two-dimensional van der Waals Indium Selenide crystals (2016)
Journal Article
Mudd, G., Molas, M., Chen, X., Zólyomi, V., Nogajewski, K., Kudrynskyi, Z. R., …Patanè, A. (2016). The direct-to-indirect band gap crossover in two-dimensional van der Waals Indium Selenide crystals. Scientific Reports, 6(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/srep39619

The electronic band structure of van der Waals (vdW) layered crystals has properties that depend on the composition, thickness and stacking of the component layers. Here we use density functional theory and high field magneto-optics to investigate th...

Highly-mismatched InAs/InSe heterojunction diodes (2016)
Journal Article
Velichko, A., Kudrynskyi, Z. R., Di Paola, D., Makarovsky, O., Kesaria, M., Krier, A., …Patanè, A. (in press). Highly-mismatched InAs/InSe heterojunction diodes. Applied Physics Letters, 109(18), https://doi.org/10.1063/1.4967381

We report on heterojunction diodes prepared by exfoliation and direct mechanical transfer of a p-type InSe thin film onto an n-type InAs epilayer. We show that despite the different crystal structures and large lattice mismatch (34%) of the component... Read More about Highly-mismatched InAs/InSe heterojunction diodes.

Nanomechanical probing of the layer/substrate interface of an exfoliated InSe sheet on sapphire (2016)
Journal Article
Beardsley, R., Akimov, A. V., Greener, J. D., Mudd, G. W., Sandeep, S., Kudrynskyi, Z. R., …Kent, A. J. (2016). Nanomechanical probing of the layer/substrate interface of an exfoliated InSe sheet on sapphire. Scientific Reports, 6, https://doi.org/10.1038/srep26970

Van der Waals (vdW) layered crystals and heterostructures have attracted substantial interest for potential applications in a wide range of emerging technologies. An important, but often overlooked, consideration in the development of implementable d...

Quantum confinement and photoresponsivity of β-In2Se3 nanosheets grown by physical vapour transport (2016)
Journal Article
Balakrishnan, N., Staddon, C. R., Smith, E. F., Stec, J., Gay, D., Mudd, G. W., …Beton, P. H. (in press). Quantum confinement and photoresponsivity of β-In2Se3 nanosheets grown by physical vapour transport. 2D Materials, 3(2), 1-8. https://doi.org/10.1088/2053-1583/3/2/025030

We demonstrate that β-In2Se3 layers with thickness ranging from 2.8 – 100 nm can be grown on SiO2/Si, mica and graphite using a physical vapour transport method. The β-In2Se3 layers are chemically stable at room temperature and exhibit a blue-shift o...

Room Temperature Electroluminescence from Mechanically Formed van der Waals III-VI Homojunctions and Heterojunctions (2014)
Journal Article
Balakrishnan, N., Kudrynskyi, Z. R., Fay, M. W., Mudd, G. W., Svatek, S. A., Makarovsky, O., …Patanè, A. (2014). Room Temperature Electroluminescence from Mechanically Formed van der Waals III-VI Homojunctions and Heterojunctions. Advanced Optical Materials, 2(11), 1064-1069. https://doi.org/10.1002/adom.201400202

Room temperature electroluminescence from semiconductor junctions is demonstrated. The junctions are fabricated by the exfoliation and direct mechanical adhesion of InSe and GaSe van der Waals layered crystals. Homojunction diodes formed from layers...
