KGaA, Weinheim. Platinum disulfide (PtS2), a new member of the group-10 transition-metal dichalcogenides, is studied experimentally and theoretically. The indirect bandgap of PtS2can be drastically tuned from 1.6 eV (monolayer) to 0.25 eV (bulk counterpart), and the interlayer mechanical coupling is almost isotropic. It can be explained by strongly interlayer interaction from the pzorbital hybridization of S atoms.
