MoWS2 (Molybdenum Tungsten Disulfide alloy)

MoWS2 Molybdenum Tungsten Disulfide alloy MoWS2 alloy is a semiconductor. We have many different types of MoWS2 alloys available, containing different ratios Mo/W: ranging from alloys which are rich in Tungsten (close to 2H-WS2) to alloys with a high Molybdenum content (close to 2H-MoS2). The layers are stacked together via van der Waals interactions and can be exfoliated into thin 2D layers. MoWS2 belongs to the group-VI transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC).
