Ripple in Flexible Material Could Improve Electronic Properties

Ripple in Flexible Material Could Improve Electronic Properties

Two-dimensional materials — those either only an atom or layer thick — display a number of interesting properties and could form the foundation for a range of new devices. One of these materials, molybdenum disulfide, has shown an unusual flexibility that could make it attractive as a semiconducting component of bendable electronics.
