Direct Observation of Orbital Driven Strong Interlayer Coupling in Puckered Two-Dimensional PdSe2 (Small 9/2022)

In article number 2106053, Kyung-Tae Ko, Kimoon Lee, and co-workers unveil the crucial role of the Pd 4d orbital distribution on the strong interlayer interaction, which is attributed to the combined effect of local symmetry and unique occupancy. The cover image illustrates that there exists a strong degree of interlayer interaction in 2D PdSe2 originating from the directional orbitals even under a large interlayer distance.
