The crystallization of polymer-mixed amorphous molybdenum sulfide was observed in-situ by a TEM equipped with a heated specimen holder. High electron beam irradiation induced the formation of a crystal structure with a lattice spacing of 0.62 nm, which corresponds to the layer spacing of MoS2. With a lower electron dose, a possible new crystal structure of molybdenum sulfide with several fringe spacings was identified at room temperature. An ordered layered structure of MoS2 appeared after annealing at 600 °C. The completely different crystal phase found here might be responsible for the high temperature required for the formation of the MoS2 layered structure.
