To date two dimensional graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) (e.g. MoS2, WS2) materials have created an immense research interests due to its extraordinary physical, chemical, and physiochemical properties, which delineated these materials as outstanding candidates for future electronics, optics, and energy-harvesting devices. Typically, graphene exhibits high electron mobility and optical transparency along with excellent mechanical properties and chemical inertness. In this context, we developed large scale graphene using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process and transferred it to different flexible, transparent substrates for applications in different flexible optoelectronic devices and solar cells. The structural characterizations (Raman spectroscopy, HRTEM, AFM) of CVD graphene on metal foils and transferred graphene on flexible, transparent substrates show the presence of 3 to 4 atomic layers of graphene with thickness 1.5 nm. Furthermore, we developed and optimized different chemical doping and functionalizations protocols in order to enhance graphene?s electrocatalytic activity towards tri-iodide (I3 -) reduction for the application in dye sensitized solar cells (DSSC). We found that different chemical functionalizations help in the improvement of graphene?s electrocatalytically active charge transfer sites with the shifting of its work function, which further enhances the DSSC efficiency. On the other hand, recent advances in atomically thin two dimensional (2-D) TMDC materials have also led to a variety of promising technologies for post-CMOS and future energy generation. We developed large scale TMDC materials using a vapor phase growth process and applications of those TMDC materials based large scale Schottky junction photo-sensor and photo-switch devices.
