Abstract
Layered materials such as MoS$_2$ display a wide range of unique electronic properties. Unlike graphene, this material has a relatively large band gap (1.3 - 1.9 eV) and exhibits stable on/off switching as a transistor. As MoS$_2$ devices are scaled down, robust high field operation is essential for the development of reliable electronic system. In this work, we show that high voltage characteristics, current drives, and breakdown voltages of MoS$_2$ transistors can be improved by reducing the contact resistance at the interface of metal/MoS$_2$.
