The dispersion of Rayleigh, Stonely, and Sezawa acoustic waves guided by deposited thin molybdenum films has been used to evaluate selected elastic constants and film homogeneity. This work includes the first experimental observation of Stonely waves by Brillouin scattering.

    The large work function of MoO3 of 6.6 eV is due to its closed shall character and the dipole layer created by planes of terminal O1 oxygen sites which lower the electrostatic potential of the inner Mo-O units. These O1 sites arise from the high stoichiometry of MoO3. The O vacancy is most...

    Interface electronic behavior of two-dimensional large scale MoS2/TiO2 hetero-thin films has been studied using photoemission spectroscopy. We show a clear experimental evidence for type II band alignment and upward band bending (~0.55 eV) at the interface of this system. The valence band offset...
