Abstract

jats:titleAbstract</jats:title>jats:pLateral heterostructures of dissimilar monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides provide great opportunities to build 1D in‐plane jats:italicp–n</jats:italic> junctions for sub‐nanometer thin low‐power electronic, optoelectronic, optical, and sensing devices. Electronic and optoelectronic applications of such jats:italicp–n</jats:italic> junction devices fabricated using a scalable one‐pot chemical vapor deposition process yielding MoSejats:sub2</jats:sub>‐WSejats:sub2</jats:sub> lateral heterostructures are reported here. The growth of the monolayer lateral heterostructures is achieved by in situ controlling the partial pressures of the oxide precursors by a two‐step heating protocol. The grown lateral heterostructures are characterized structurally and optically using optical microscopy, Raman spectroscopy/microscopy, and photoluminescence spectroscopy/microscopy. High‐resolution transmission electron microscopy further confirms the high‐quality 1D boundary between MoSejats:sub2</jats:sub> and WSejats:sub2</jats:sub> in the lateral heterostructure. jats:italicp–n</jats:italic> junction devices are fabricated from these lateral heterostructures and their applicability as rectifiers, solar cells, self‐powered photovoltaic photodetectors, ambipolar transistors, and electroluminescent light emitters are demonstrated.</jats:p>
