Abstract

Two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors have demonstrated great potential in modern nanotechnologies across a variety of research fields, including (opto-)electronics, spintronics, and electro-/photocatalysis. Interestingly, the vast majority of 2D semiconductors, such as the widely explored transition-metal dichalcogenides, are n-type or ambipolar. The search for p-type 2D semiconductors in the past decade has succeeded in identifying only a few promising candidate materials. In this Perspective, we discuss various strategies to obtain p-type conduction in normally n-type or ambipolar 2D semiconductors and, more importantly, the direct synthesis of p-type 2D semiconductors such as black phosphorus, 2D tellurium, and, most recently, α-MnS.
