Title: Substrate interactions with suspended and supported monolayer Mo S 2 : Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy

Abstract

We report the directly measured electronic structure of exfoliated monolayer molybdenum disulfide ( Mo S 2 ) using micrometer-scale angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Measurements of both suspended and supported monolayer Mo S 2 elucidate the effects of interaction with a substrate. A suggested relaxation of the in-plane lattice constant is found for both suspended and supported monolayer Mo S 2 crystals. For suspended Mo S 2 , a careful investigation of the measured uppermost valence band gives an effective mass at $$\bar{Γ}$$ and $$\bar{K}$$ of 2.00 m 0 and 0.43 m 0 , respectively. We also measure an increase in the band linewidth from the midpoint of $$\bar{Γ}$$ K to the vicinity of $$\bar{K}$$ and briefly discuss its possible origin.
