Title: Ferroelectric-Domain-Patterning-Controlled Schottky Junction State in Monolayer MoS 2

Here, we exploit scanning probe controlled domain patterning in a ferroelectric top-layer to induce nonvolatile modulation of the conduction characteristic of monolayer MoS 2 between a transistor and a junction state. In the presence of a domain wall, MoS 2 exhibits rectified I-V that is well described by the thermionic emission model. The induced Schottky barrier height Φ eff Β varies from 0.38 eV to 0.57 eV and is tunabe by a SiO 2 global back-gate, while the tuning range of Φ eff Β the barrier height depends sensitively on the conduction band tail trapping states. Our work points to a new route to achieve programmable functionalities in van der Waals materials and sheds light on the critical performance limiting factors in these hybrid systems.
