Effect of pressure on electrical resistance of WSe2 single crystal
- 215 Downloads
The results of electrical resistance measurements under pressure on single crystals of WSe2 are reported. Measurements up to 8.5 GPa are carried out using Bridgman anvil set up and beyond it using diamond anvil cell (DAC) up to a pressure of 27 GPa. There is no clear indication of any phase transition till the highest pressure is reached in these measurements.
