Alternative two-dimensional semiconductors are sought by by S. Balendhran, K. Kalantar-zadeh, and co-workers. On page 3952, the authors describe the current state of the art of layered, two-dimensional molybdenum trioxide and dichalcogenides, including their fundamental properties, synthesis, and applications. The cover image portrays 2D MoO3 field-effect transistors and MoS2 phototransistors.
