Electronic Properties of Transition Metal Dichalcogenides and Their Intercalation Complexes

  • W. Y. Liang
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 148)


The transition metal dichalcogenides and their intercalate complexes belong to a large class of the so-called two-dimensional solids in which there is a good deal of interest at present. They are called two dimensional because they are formed in layered structures. Atoms within a layer are bound by strong covalent or ionic forces while individual layers are held together by relatively much weaker forces. The latter are frequently referred to as “van der Waals” type of interactions, though some contributions from covalent and ionic interaction are also possible, particularly in the intercalate complexes.
