Layered transition metal dichalcogenides or TMDCs -- materials composed of metal nanolayers sandwiched between two other layers of chalcogens -- have become extremely attractive to the research community. Similar to graphene, they not only retain some of the unique properties of the bulk material, but also demonstrate direct-gap semiconducting behavior, excellent electrocatalytic activity and unique quantum phenomena such as charge density waves.

It may be tempting for parents or coaches to urge young children to specialize in one sport early on to help maximize their chance at making it to the big leagues, but that might not be the best path to success.
