WS2 (2H Tungsten Disulfide)
2H-WS2 is a semiconductor with an indirect band gap of ~1.3 eV. Monolayer 2H-WS2 has a direct band gap. The layers are stacked together via van der Waals interactions and can be exfoliated into thin 2D layers. Tungsten Disulfide belongs to the group-VI transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC).
