The extreme demand for energy is skyrocketing in order to keep up with rapid technological advancement. This growing demand for energy has paved the way for exploring advanced materials for the development of new green energy-harvesting systems as a part of sustainable energy management. Two-dimensional materials are the latest focus materials in the scientific world. They are eco-friendly and have high potential. It opens up wide applications beyond research limits.1 Among 2D, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) represent the biggest class of layered materials. This chapter enumerates the unique structural and optical properties of the most promising TMD, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), and its various applications in light-energy-harvesting systems. Molybdenum disulfide is a classic two-dimensional material that exhibits band gap tunability from indirect (bulk) to direct (mono-few layer) form.2 The unique structural, electrical, and optical properties of this layered material make it ideal for application in photodetectors and solar cells.3,4 This chapter begins with a brief overview of two-dimensional materials, followed by the TMD MoS2 structure and properties. The main content of this chapter will discuss the important light-harvesting applications of 2D MoS2 in the next-generation ultrathin solar cells, photocatalytic, and photovoltaic applications. © 2024 by Apple Academic Press, Inc.
