ABSTRACT Two-dimensional ZrS2 materials have potential for applications in nanoelectronics because of their theoretically predicted high mobility and sheet current density. Herein, we report the thickness and temperature dependent transport properties of ZrS2 multilayers that were directly deposited on hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) by chemical vapor deposition. Hysteresis-free gate sweeping, metalinsulator transition, and T–γ (γ ~ 0.82–1.26) temperature dependent mobility were observed in the ZrS2 films.
