The growth of wafer-scale two-dimensional (2D) single crystals, especially transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), is significantly essential for various electronic applications. However, the growth of wafer-scale single-crystal TMD (sc-TMD) monolayers on commercial substrates still remains challenging. Recently, two works published in Nature Nanotechnology have independently reported a substrate-cutting strategy for epitaxial growth of wafer-scale sc-TMD monolayers, which might open up a new route for preparing wafer-scale sc-TMD monolayers on commercially scalable insulating substrates for future electronics.
