The Space Electronics Technology Branch RVSW is conducting a first time experimental and theoretical investigation focused on evaluating new physical phenomena in the quasi-quantum regime in which the hole mobility tends to exceed the electron mobility, and the electron reaches the group velocity in 2-D materials. These phenomena are due to a dramatic reduction of the holes effective mass resulting from combined effects of two dimensional confinement coupled with straintensile effects, and due to the electron wave function not being able to penetrate the barrier regions in 2D materials.
