Low-frequency current fluctuations are monitored and the mechanism of electric noise investigated in layered 2H-type α-molybdenum ditelluride transistors. The charge transport mechanism of electric noise in atomically thin transition-metal dichalcogenides is studied under different environments; the development of a new sensing functionality may be stimulated.
