Researchers demonstrate a valleytronics device based on TMDC

Researchers at Berkeley Lab have experimentally demonstrated the ability to electrically generate and control valley electrons in transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC, a 2D semiconductor) .

The researchers say that this is the first demonstration of electrical excitation and control of valley electrons. TDMCs are considered to be more mature (closer to production) than any other semiconductors that exhibit valleytronic properties.
