Abstract

By means of density functional theory and unbiased structure search computations, we systematically investigated the stability and electronic properties of a new Ga2O2 monolayer. The phonon spectra and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations show that the Ga2O2 monolayer is dynamically and thermally stable. Moreover, it also shows superior open-air stability. In particular, the Ga2O2 monolayer is an indirect semiconductor with a wide band gap of 2.752 eV and high hole mobility of 4720 cm2 V−1 s−1. Its band gap can be tuned flexibly in a large range by applied strain and layer control. It exhibits high absorption coefficients (>105 cm−1) in the ultraviolet region. The combined novel electronic properties of the Ga2O2 monolayer imply that it is a highly promising material for future applications in electronics and optoelectronics.
