Project Description: My project focuses on understanding atomic defects in transition metal dichalcogenide films grown by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. The emphasis is on how films form and the spatial variations present within semiconductor alloys and heterostructures. We are interested in the grain structure and engineering defects at the atomic scale.
