Unusual ‘quasiparticle’ in common 2D material, ScienceDaily, 27 August 2019

ScienceDaily, ScienMag, Phys.Org and various science websites reported on the discovery of a new quasiparticle named ‘polaronic trion’, found in molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) by an NUS team. The quasiparticle could be used to design an optical modulator for visible light that is controlled by both temperature and electric fields. Yale-NUS College Associate Professor of Science (Physics) Shaffique Adam was one of the lead authors involved in the research, which was published in Advanced Materials on 26 August 2019.
