The method used in the study: Gold (Au) is deposited on a monolayer of molybdenum disulfide (MoS?), which rests upon a silicon (Si) substrate with an oxidized layer labeled SiO?; "vdW gap" denotes the van der Waals gap. Credit: MIPT Press Office

Gold films (Au) of varying thickness - indicated in nanometers (nm) - deposited on the conventionally used silicon dioxide substrate (SiO?, bottom row) and a molybdenum disulfide monolayer (MoS?, top row), as seen with an electron microscope. Credit: Yury Stebunov et al.
