A monolayer of tungsten disulphide may exist as star shape or triangular shape patterns, when excited the same star-shaped flake glows and displays captivating red patterns in the form of alternate dark and bright band. The concentric fluorescence pattern is the result of the delicate variation of chemicals within the tungsten disulphide monolayer.
