Effects of Intercalating Polysilanes into MoS2 Interlaminar Spaces on Transport Property
Effects of intercalating, undoped, B-doped and P-doped polysilanes (PSi) into molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) interlaminar spaces on transport property were investigated in this study by using density functional theory (DFT) and non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) methods. It was found that embarking undoped PSi could enhance conductivity. The B-doping and P-doping upon PSi had significant influences on transport properties of PSi/MoS2 intercalation compounds. The B-doping further increased the conductivity by introducing typical p-type semiconductor character while the P-doping introduced typical n-type semiconductor feature. Heavy doping was not beneficial in increasing the conductivity. Moreover, sandwiching a large content of undoped or doped PSi was favorable in enhancing the conductivity. Overall, intercalating light B-doped or P-doped PSi into MoS2 interlaminar spaces with large amount is an effective strategy for achieving p- or n-type semiconductor nanocomposites.
