Molecular bridges power up printed electronics

The exfoliation of graphite into graphene layers inspired the investigation of thousands of layered materials: amongst them transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). These semiconductors can be used to make conductive inks to manufacture printed electronic and optoelectronic devices. However, defects in their structure may hinder their performance. Now, Graphene Flagship researchers have overcome these hurdles by introducing ‘molecular bridges,’ small molecules that interconnect the TMD flakes, thereby boosting the conductivity and overall performance.
