Super thrilled to have our work on front cover of ACS Applied Nano Materials! This is the work of my post-doc, Dr. Gabriele Boschetto, on “Ab Initio Computer Simulations on Interfacial Properties of Single-Layer MoS2 and Au Contacts for Two-Dimensional Nanodevices”.

The cover art illustrates how antisite Mo atoms act as “conductive bridges” between MoS2 and the Au electrode, thus enhancing the electron injection rate from the metal electrode to the 2D material.
