Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a simple but powerful technique to synthesize thin films of various materials. It can also be used to synthesize nano-structured materials if it is used with nano-structured templates or catalysts. We have developed separate flow CVD system to make multilayered transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) or doped layers [1,2]. We used the apparatus to make nanocomposite between carbon nanotube and MoS2 that was applied to photovoltaic applications (Figure 1) . We also describe the search for the catalysts to make TMDC nanostructures.
