Abstract: T ensile tests at a variety of temperatures have been carried out on composites consisting of tungsten or molybdenum wires, uniaxially aligned in a copper matrix. Both continuous and discontinuous wires have been used, and both brittle and ductile tungsten wires. It is found that the breaking strength is a linear function of the wire content. A simple theory to explain this is developed and auxiliary experiments to check the theory are described. Some simple predictions about the behaviour of fibre reinforced metals are made from the results.

Abstract: Despite recent progress in the synthesis and characterization of molybdenum disulphide, little is yet known about its microstructure. Using refined chemical vapour deposition synthesis, high-quality crystals of monolayer molybdenum disulphide have now been grown. Single-crystal islands and polycrystals containing tilt and mirror twin grain boundaries are characterized, and the influence of the grain boundaries on the material properties of molybdenum disulphide is assessed.

TL;DR: The controlled vapour phase synthesis of molybdenum disulphide atomic layers is reported and a fundamental mechanism for the nucleation, growth, and grain boundary formation in its crystalline monolayers is elucidated.
Abstract: Single-layered molybdenum disulphide with a direct bandgap is a promising two-dimensional material that goes beyond graphene for the next generation of nanoelectronics. Here, we report the controlled vapour phase synthesis of molybdenum disulphide atomic layers and elucidate a fundamental mechanism for the nucleation, growth, and grain boundary formation in its crystalline monolayers. Furthermore, a nucleation-controlled strategy is established to systematically promote the formation of large-area, single- and few-layered films. Using high-resolution electron microscopy imaging, the atomic structure and morphology of the grains and their boundaries in the polycrystalline molybdenum disulphide atomic layers are examined, and the primary mechanisms for grain boundary formation are evaluated. Grain boundaries consisting of 5- and 7- member rings are directly observed with atomic resolution, and their energy landscape is investigated via first-principles calculations. The uniformity in thickness, large grain sizes, and excellent electrical performance signify the high quality and scalable synthesis of the molybdenum disulphide atomic layers.
