In this work, a printable tungsten disulfide (WS2) based ink is developed from readily available WS2 powder (0.6 µm average particle size), and an ink-jet printing based deposition method for a tungsten disulfide film is presented. WS2 flake coverage and bulk electrical characteristics under three different irradiance conditions are examined and discussed. Presence of excitons in the absorbance of the inks is performed by optical UV-Vis spectrometry. Metrics using the A exciton peak generated by the few-layered flakes are used to calculate the average flake lateral dimensions, the concentration of WS2 in the inks after size selection and filtering, as well as the average monolayer count of the flakes. After printing, scanning electron microscopy is used to confirm average flake lateral size and average flake area coverage, while an atomic force microscope is used to confirm flake thickness.
