Seminar:How to find New Chalcogenide Superconductors as a chemist?

Time: 10:30 am, Wednesday, August 23, 2017

MX2 Layered transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs, M = Mo, W, V, Nb, Ta, Ti, Zr, Hf, and Re, and X = Se, S or Te), have long been of interest due to the rich electronic properties that emerge due to their low dimensionality. Herein, we report how to search new chalcogenide superconductors by solid state chemistry method. A series of new chalcogenide superconductors were discovered successfully combining with theory and experiments. The growth of materials, structural characterizations and electronic properties were studied.
