NbS2 (2H Niobium Disulfide)

2H NbS2 Niobium Disulfide NbS2 (2H phase) is superconductor with a Tc ~6K and a charge density waves (CDW) system. Note that NbS2 also exists in the 3R-NbS2 phase (for the 3R phase NbS2 click here) The layers are stacked together via van der Waals interactions and can be exfoliated into thin 2D layers. NbS2 belongs to the group-V transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC). To buy NbS2 crystals please click here.

The 2H NbS2 crystals produced at HQ Graphene have a typical lateral size of ~0.2 cm, trigonal/hexagonal shaped and have a metallic appearance. More information about the NbS2 crystals we sell can be found below.
