AbstractThe recent development of two-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenides in electronics and optoelelectronics has triggered the exploration in spintronics, with high demand in search for half-metallicity in these systems. Here, through density functional theory (DFT) calculations, we predict robust half metallic behaviors in Co-edge-doped WSe2 nanoribbons (NRs). With electrons partially occupying the antibonding state consisting of Co 3d(yz) and Se 4p(z) orbitals, the system becomes spin-polarized due to the defect-state-induced Stoner effect and the strong exchange splitting eventually gives rise to the half-metallicity. The half-metal gap reaches 0.15 eV on the DFT generalized gradient approximation level and increases significantly to 0.67 eV using hybrid functional. Furthermore, we find that the half-metallicity sustains even under large external strain and relatively low edge doping concentration, which promises the potential of such Co-edge-doped WSe2 NRs in spintronics applications.; The recent development of two-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenides in electronics and optoelelectronics has triggered the exploration in spintronics, with high demand in search for half-metallicity in these systems.
