Tuning the Bandgap of Exfoliated InSe Nanosheets by Quantum Confinement

Abstract

Strong quantization effects and tuneable near-infrared photoluminescence emission are reported in mechanically exfoliated crystals of γ-rhombohedral semiconducting InSe. The optical properties of InSe nanosheets differ qualitatively from those reported recently for exfoliated transition metal dichalcogenides and indicate a crossover from a direct to an indirect band gap semiconductor when the InSe flake thickness is reduced to a few nanometers.
