WTe2 (Tungsten Ditelluride)

WTe2 Tungsten Ditelluride WTe2 is a semi-metal, type II Weyl semimetal (WSM). The layers are stacked together via van der Waals interactions and can be exfoliated into thin 2D layers. Tungsten Ditelluride belongs to the group-VI transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC). To buy WTe2 crystals please click here.

The WTe2 crystals produced at HQ Graphene have a typical lateral size of ~0.6-0.8 cm, needle/rechtangular shaped and have a metallic appearance. We produce n-type WTe2, having a typical charge carrier density of ~1020cm-3 at room temperature. A selection of peer review publications on the WTe2 we sell can be found below.
