Defects in 2D semiconductors could lead to multi-colored light-emitting devices

When scientists remove individual atoms in a semiconductor material, the resulting vacancies become point defects. Contrary to what their name implies, these defects can have beneficial effects on the semiconductor's properties and enable most functionalities of electronic materials. In a new study, researchers have demonstrated that point defects in 2D semiconductors result in an increase in the overall room-temperature photoluminescence intensity. Further, the defects create a new emission peak that could lead to a better understanding of defect physics in 2D semiconductors as well as future applications such as multi-colored light-emitting
