Title: Near-field infrared spectroscopy of monolayer MnPS 3

Abstract

We measured the near-field infrared response of MnPS3 in bulk, few-, and single-layer form and compared our findings with traditional far-field vibrational spectroscopies, a symmetry analysis, and first-principles lattice dynamics calculations. Furthermore, trends in the Bu mode near 450cm–1 are striking, with the disappearance of this structure in the thinnest sheets. Combined with the amplified response of the activated Ag mode and analysis of the Au + Bu features, we find that symmetry is unexpectedly increased in few- and single-sheet MnPS3 due to a restoration of the threefold axes of rotation. Monoclinicity in this system is therefore a consequence of the long-range stacking pattern and temperature rather than local structure.
