Element- and Site-Specific Many-Body Interactions in Few-Layer MoS2 During X-Ray Absorption Processes 
Phys. Status Solidi A 
many-body interactions, X-ray absorption spectromicroscopy, Few-layer MoS2 transistor 
Few-layer MoS2 is a promising 2D material for nano-electronic device applications. However, the performance of these devices is often deteriorated. One of the reasons is that the electronic properties are influential to the many-body effects such as excitonic effects and Anderson orthogonality catastrophe (AOC) which could renormalize the band-dispersion and density of-states (DOS). Hence, the authors investigate the effect of many-body interactions on MoS2 device performance by using X-ray absorption spectromicroscopy (m-XAS) on a few-layer MoS2 transistor in operation, through the application of gate-bias or contact with a metal. The results show a significant peak shift in m-XAS spectra while varying the gate-bias. The applied negative gate-bias induces more holes which attracts excited electrons resulting strong many-body interactions followed by Fermi level shift. This effect is discussed with the aid of XAS-Auger electron phenomena. However, the AOC contribution in XAS peak-intensity is ignored since the bands around the energy-gap in MoS2 are relatively flat and the DOS is empty above Fermi level (unlike graphene). The authors observe a redshift in photon energy near the MoS2/metal-electrode interface due to charge transfer ensuring carrier-doping induced through metal-contact. These observations provide significant insight into element- and site-specific many-body interactions in MoS2 tunable by gate-bias or contact with a metal.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
