The Raman scattering has been studied in heterostructures composed of a thin MoS2 flake and a 1-1.5 nm layer of thermally evaporated gold
(Au). There have been Au nanoislands detected in the heterostructure. It has been found that their surface density and the average size depend on the MoS2 thickness. The Raman scattering
spectrum in the heterostructure with a few monolayer MoS2 only weakly depends on the excitation (resonant vs. non-resonant) mode. The overall Raman spectrum corresponds to the total density of phonon states, which is characteristic for disordered systems. The disorder in the MoS2 layer is related to the mechanical strain induced in the MoS2 layer by the Au nanoislands. The strain results in the localization of phonon modes, which leads to the relaxation of the momentum conservation rule in the scattering process. The relaxation allows phonons from the whole MoS2
Brillouin zone to interact with electronic excitations. Our results show that the Au nanoislands resulted from thermal evaporation of a thin metal layer introduce substantial disorder into the crystalline structure of the thin MoS2 layers.
