|Two-dimensional (2D) atom-thin layers have attracted significant attention after the discovery of primitive fabrication method of graphene (i.e., mechanical exfoliation of graphite using scotch tapes). As a van-deer Waals engineering, various atom-thin layers and those hybridization are recently studied. In the talk, first, I present magnetism and spintronics arising from edges of 2D atom-thin layers (e.g., graphene, few-layer black phosphorus (BP), hexagonal boron-nitride (hBN), and molybdenum disulfide (MoS2)). I create nanomesh (NM) structures, consisting of honeycomb like array of hexagonal nano-pores, with specified poreedge atomic structure (i.e., zigzag type) on individual layers. Interestingly, hydrogen-terminated graphene NM (H-GNM) shows flat-band ferromagnetism, while it disappears in oxygen-terminated GNM (O-GNM). On the other hand, O-BPNM exhibits large ferromagnetism (100 times) due to ferromagnetic spin coupling of edge O-P bonds, whereas it is eliminated in H-BPNM. O-hBNNM also shows large ferromagnetism due to edge O-B and O-N bonds, while it disappears in H-hBNNM. These are also highly sensitive to annealing temperatures to form zigzag pore edge. These open a considerable avenue for realizing 2D atom-thin flexible magnetic and spintronic devices, fabricated without using rare-earth magnetic atoms. Second, I show creation of the world-thinnest Schottky junction on few-layer MoS2, one of the transition metal dichalcogenides. The 2H-phase of MoS2 has direct band gaps of 1.5−1.8 eV. It is demonstrated that electron-beam (EB) irradiation to the 2H-phase causes semiconductor-metal transition to 1T-phase and atomically-thin Schottky junction with barrier height of 0.13−0.18 eV is created at the interface of 2H/1T regions. These findings also indicate a possibility that the effective barrier height is highly sensitive to electrostatic charge doping and almost free from Fermi-level pinning when assuming predominance of the thermionic current contribution. This EB top-down patterning opens the possibility to fabricate in-plane lateral heterostructure FETs, which have shown promising scaling prospects in the nanometer range, and/or local interconnects directly with metallic phase (1T) between (2H)MoS2 transistors, resulting in ultimate flexible and wearable in-plane integration circuits without using 3D metal wirings. Finally, I will also briefly talk about introduction of spin-orbit interaction into graphene by nano-particle decoration.|
