Since the discovery of graphene in 2004, the field of 2D materials has exploded. Transition metal dichalcogenides are an emerging class of 2D material that have promising applications in electronic devices, optical devices, and beyond. In this study, we use a chemical vapor deposition scheme with bidirectional flow to grow and dope with other transition metals to exploit magnetic properties that the dopants impart. We then study the grown materials using various structural and optical probes in order to determine if the valley symmetry of these doped materials is broken.Not Submitted
