In-plane anisotropic electronics based on low-symmetry 2D materials: progress and prospects

Author affiliations

Abstract

Low-symmetry layered materials such as black phosphorus (BP) have been revived recently due to their high intrinsic mobility and in-plane anisotropic properties, which can be used in anisotropic electronic and optoelectronic devices. Since the anisotropic properties have a close relationship with their anisotropic structural characters, especially for materials with low-symmetry, exploring new low-symmetry layered materials and investigating their anisotropic properties have inspired numerous research efforts. In this paper, we review the recent experimental progresses on low-symmetry layered materials and their corresponding anisotropic electrical transport, magneto-transport, optoelectronic, thermoelectric, ferroelectric, and piezoelectric properties. The boom of new low-symmetry layered materials with high anisotropy could open up considerable possibilities for next-generation anisotropic multifunctional electronic devices.
