Title: Significantly enhanced magnetoresistance in monolayer WTe 2 via heterojunction engineering: a first-principles study

Abstract

The large non-saturating magnetoresistance (MR) of bulk WTe 2 is greatly reduced in thin films, and vdW heterojunction engineering can significantly enhance the MR effect.
