Hexbyte Glen Cove 2D materials combine, becoming polarized and giving rise to photovoltaic effect

Tungsten selenide (WSe2) and black phosphorus (BP) do not exhibit polarized electronic behavior until combined such that their structures overlap. Credit: ©2021 Ideue et al. For the first time, researchers have discovered a way to obtain polarity and photovoltaic behavior from certain nonphotovoltaic, atomically flat (2D) materials. The key lies in the special way...
