Abstract

The high-bias electrical characteristics of back-gated field-effect transistors with chemical vapor deposition synthesized bilayer MoS2 channel and Ti Schottky contacts are discussed. It is found that oxidized Ti contacts on MoS2 form rectifying junctions with ≈0.3 to 0.5 eV Schottky barrier height. To explain the rectifying output characteristics of the transistors, a model is proposed based on two slightly asymmetric back-to-back Schottky barriers, where the highest current arises from image force barrier lowering at the electrically forced junction, while the reverse current is due to Schottkybarrier- limited injection at the grounded junction. The device achieves a photoresponsivity greater than 2.5 A W−1 under 5 mW cm−2 white-LED light. By comparing two- and four-probe measurements, it is demonstrated that the hysteresis and persistent photoconductivity exhibited by the transistor are peculiarities of the MoS2 channel rather than effects of the Ti/MoS2 interface.
