 Growth of rhenium disulfide by atomic layer deposition is studied. ReS2 is a 2D material that is not limited to the monolayer thickness because of effective decoupling of the monolayers in bulk. The ReS2 films are deposited from ReCl5 and H2S at up to 500 °C, also on a 3D structure, and the films are characterized.
