    Abstract

    This journal is © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2015. The precise control of the morphology and crystal shape of MoS2 nanostructures is of particular importance for their application in nanoelectronic and optoelectronic devices. Here, we describe a single step route for the synthesis of monolayer-by-monolayer stacked pyramid-like MoS2 nanodots on monolayered MoS2 flakes using a chemical vapor deposition method. First-principles calculations demonstrated that the bandgap of the pyramid-like MoS2 nanodot is a direct bandgap. Enhanced local photoluminescence emission was observed in the pyramid-like MoS2 nanodot, in comparison with monolayered MoS2 flakes. The findings presented here provide new opportunities to tailor the physical properties of MoS2via morphology-controlled synthesis.
