Atomic force microscopy pulsed force mode verifies that molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) has a smaller surface adhesion energy than graphene. MEMS switches based on MoS2 may have less stiction problems. Suspended MoS2 two-end fixed beams were fabricated, and their mechanical properties including Young's modulus were characterized by atomic force microscope (AFM) indentation. MoS2 dc contact MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) switches were demonstrated with a pull-in voltage of less than 10 V.
