Molybdenum disulfide sample2

Molybdenum disulfide sample2

Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Columbia Engineering have made the first experimental observation of piezoelectricity and the piezotronic effect in an atomically thin material, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). Shown is a sample of the material that could be the basis for unique electric generator and mechanosensation devices that are optically transparent, very light, and extremely bendable and stretchable.
