MoS2 Liquid Cell Electron Microscopy Through Clean and Fast Polymer-Free MoS2 Transfer

Scientific Achievement

Developed MoS2 liquid cells for in situ TEM studies of Pt-MoS2 heterostructure formation.

Significance and Impact

Liquid cells using 2D MoS2 as a functional substrate and membrane window allow the direct observation of Pt nanocrystal growth on the MoS2 substrate, and can be applied to other systems.
