Title: First-principle study of hydrogenation on monolayer MoS{sub 2}

Abstract

The structural and electronic properties of hydrogenation on 1H-MoS{sub 2} and 1T-MoS{sub 2} have been systematically explored by using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Our calculated results indicate an energetically favorable chemical interaction between H and MoS{sub 2} monolayer for H adsorption when increasing concentration of H atoms. For 1H-MoS{sub 2}, single H atom adsorption creates midgap approaching the Fermi level which increases the n-type carrier concentration effectively. As a consequence, its electrical conductivity is expected to increase significantly. For 1T-MoS{sub 2}, H atoms adsorption can lead to the opening of a direct gap of 0.13 eV compared to the metallic pristine 1T-MoS{sub 2}.
