Tungsten Diselenide Making Waves in Optoelectronics

IEEE Spectrum reported that researchers at a variety of universities have achieved “interesting optoelectronics results” using a new two-dimensional material called tungsten diselenide (WSe2).

IEEE Spectrum reported that researchers at a variety of universities have achieved “interesting optoelectronics results” using a new two-dimensional material called tungsten diselenide (WSe2).

The publication notes that the material looks to have applications outside optoelectronics as well.

As quoted in the market news:

Tungsten diselenide belongs to a larger group of transition metal dichalcogenides that also includes molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). This family consists of materials that combine one of 15 transition metals with one of three members of the chalcogen family: sulfur, selenium, or tellurium. With only a few of these transition metals having been experimented upon, it’s likely we should see more coming down the pike.

The three research groups focused on optoelectronics applications of tungsten diselenide, but each with a slightly different emphasis.
