Two-dimensional (2D) materials with intrinsic atomic-level thicknesses are strong candidates for the development of deeply scaled field-effect transistors (FETs) and novel device architectures. In particular, transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), of which molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is the most widely studied, are especially attractive because of their non-zero bandgap, mechanical flexibility, and optical transparency. In this contribution, we present an efficient full-wave model of MoS2-FETs that is based on (1) defining the constitutive relations of the MoS2 active channel, and (2) simulating the 3D geometry. The former is achieved by using atomistic simulations of the material crystal structure, the latter is obtained by using the solver COMSOL Multiphysics. We show examples of FET simulations and compare, when possible, the theoretical results to the experimental from the literature. The comparison highlights a very good agreement.

Abstract

Two-dimensional (2D) materials with intrinsic atomic-level thicknesses are strong candidates for the development of deeply scaled field-effect transistors (FETs) and novel device architectures. In particular, transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), of which molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is the most widely studied, are especially attractive because of their non-zero bandgap, mechanical flexibility, and optical transparency. In this contribution, we present an efficient full-wave model of MoS2-FETs that is based on (1) defining the constitutive relations of the MoS2 active channel, and (2) simulating the 3D geometry. The former is achieved by using atomistic simulations of the material crystal structure, the latter is obtained by using the solver COMSOL Multiphysics. We show examples of FET simulations and compare, when possible, the theoretical results to the experimental from the literature. The comparison highlights a very good agreement.
