This talk will introduce 2D materials. In particular, I will focus on our work at the NUS Surface Science Laboratory (SSL) on 2D transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). As many TMDs are semiconducting, their electrical properties can be significantly modulated, and potentially utilized in many device applications. I will also introduce our work on magnetic TMDs.
