The growth of copper, silver and gold thin films on tungsten disulfide has been examined as a model of metal contacts on a layered semiconductor. All three metals were found to grow epitaxially on the WS2. However, Cu appears to form a discontinuous film while Au and Ag grow layer by layer. Such epitaxial growth is somewhat surprising since there is a large lattice mismatch between the metals and the WS2.
