Intercalation of Li into Single Crystals of MoS2

  • C. A. Papageorgopoulos (a1) and W. Jaegermann (a2)


In this paper we study in situ the intercalation of Li across and along the van der Waals planes of MoS2 single crystals. Li is intercalated according to the band model. The intercalation reaction is inhibited by a Li-S interaction. This interaction is negligible when Li is deposited along the van der Waals planes. The dominance of the intercalation reaction of Li into MoS2 is dependent on the flux of the deposited Li and the substrate temperature.
