Mechanical resonator based on semiconductor monolayer

Mechanical resonators based on semiconductor monolayers

Group Association:

Description of Activities:

We take advantage of our expertise on nanoscale resonators to study resonators based on monolayer semiconductors, such as WSe2 and MoS2. These new 2-dimensional materials have recently attracted enormous interest because of their exceptional optical and electronic properties, but studies of their mechanical vibrations are extremely scarce. The aim of this project is to couple mechanical vibrational states to two-dimensional excitons, valley pseudospins, and single quantum emitters.
