Titanium Diselenide (TiSe2) Powder and Crystal

Product Code M2151C1
Price £269.00

Low price, high purity 2D metal titanium diselenide powder and crystals

For the development of next-generation electronics, optoelectronics, and nanotechnology

Titanium diselenide (TiSe2) is a family member of Group IV transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), and is of great interest as one of the typical charge density wave (CDW) materials. It is known that the CDW characteristics of TiSe2 can be changed; they are typically suppressed. In some cases, this leads to superconductivity or magnetic order by applying high pressure or intercalation. 

TiSe2 has an octahedral crystal structure (1T, space group D3d) with van der Waals stacked layers. In its bulk form, 1T-TiSe2 undergoes a phase transition from a semimetal (1 × 1 × 1 normal phase) to a commensurate CDW (2 × 2 × 2 CDW) at around 200 K. Recent discoveries have demonstrated that superconductivity in TiSe2 can be induced either by field-effect doping of few-layer TiSe2, or copper doping to form CuxTiSe2. In both cases, the suppression of the CDW is considered essential to achieve superconductivity.

TiSe2 has an electronic structure near the Fermi energy level comparable to that of a semiconductor. Its valence and conduction bands overlap slightly through an indirect gap. Rather interestingly,  TiSehas an exotic ground state, the 'excitonic insulator' phase.

We supply low price titanium diselenide in several different forms for a range of applications.

Structure and Properties of 2D Titanium Diselenide

After exfoliation of crystals or powder, titanium diselenide typically has the following properties:

  • Hexagonal (1T) structure (space group: P3m1 D3d)
  • CDW characteristics of TiSe2 can be changed or suppressed
  • Superconductivity in TiSe2 can be induced either by field-effect doping of few-layer TiSe2, or copper doping to form CuxTiSe2

Applications of Titanium diselenide

Titanium diselenide single crystals can be used to prepare monolayer and few-layer TiSe2 by mechanical or liquid exfoliation. Titanium diselenide powder is suitable for liquid chemical exfoliation to prepare TiSe2 nanosheets and nanoparticles down to few-layer films. 

Titanium diselenide has potential applications in superconductors, optoelectronics, advanced low‐power electronics, voltage-controlled oscillators, and ultra-fast electronics.

Structure of Titanium Diselenide

TiSe2 has an octahedral crystal structure (1T, space group D3d) with van der Waals stacked layers. Monolayer TiSe2 consists of stacked Se–Ti–Se atomic layers, in which Ti and Se atoms are strongly bound within the layer. Ti atom is located in the center of the octahedral, which is the inversion symmetry point.

Applications of Titanium Diselenide

Titanium diselenide has potential applications in optoelectronics, advanced low‐powerelectronics, superconductors, voltage-controlled oscillators, and ultra-fast electronics.

Mono- or few-layer TiSe2 has potential applications in controllable-switch electronic devices, and quantum information processing (based on CDW).

The electron doping due to the Li intercalation and the expansion of the interlayer spacing between TiSe2 layers due to the intercalation of diamines suppress the charge density wave transition and lead to the appearance of superconductivity. Also Mg-ion battery with a micro-sized TiSe2 cathode shows rechargeable performance at ambient temperature.
