Caption: An animated illustration shows the precise arrangement of atoms in one possible dislocation in two-dimensional molybdenum/sulfur. Dislocations happen when two growing blooms of material come together at different angles in chemical vapor deposition. At a specific angle, the lines along which these dislocations form can become conductive.
