World record size WSe2 crystals. We offer the largest size crystals at the highest quality possible. Our WSe2 crystals are treated as gold standards in field. These WSe2 vdW crystals are grown using two different techniques, namely chemical vapor transport (CVT) and Flux zone growth (Flux) to achieve impressive WSe2 characteristics. We offer guaranteed excitonic, PL, and electronic properties.
Flux grown: WSe2 crystals will exhibit superior electronic, valleytronic performance with perfect crystallization, defect free structure, extremely narrow PL bandwidths, clean PL spectra (free of bound exciton shoulders), and high carrier mobility.
CVT grown: These samples will be more comparable to other commercially available materials with some defects and lower electronic/optical quality but at slightly larger sizes.

Growth method matters> Flux zone or CVT growth method? Contamination of halides and point defects in layered crystals are well known cause for their reduced electronic mobility, reduced anisotropic response, poor e-h recombination, low-PL emission, and lower optical absorption. Flux zone technique is a halide free technique used for synthesizing truly semiconductor grade vdW crystals. This method distinguishes itself from chemical vapor transport (CVT) technique in the following regard: CVT is a quick (~2 weeks) growth method but exhibits poor crystalline quality and the defect concentration reaches to 1E11 to 1E12 cm-2 range. In contrast, flux method takes long (~3 months) growth time, but ensures slow crystallization for perfect atomic structuring, and impurity free crystal growth with defect concentration as low as 1E9 - 1E10 cm-2. During check out just state which type of growth process is preferred. Unless otherwise stated, 2Dsemiconductors ships Flux zone crystals as a default choice. Combined crystal size reaches to ~cm.
