It is widely recognized that constructing multiple interface structures for enhanced interface polarization is beneficial to microwave absorption. Here, we report our work of achieving excellent microwave-absorption performance and controlling better-defined interfaces in vertically stacked two-dimensional (2D) MoS2 with other dimensional building blocks. The optimal reflection loss and effective absorbing bandwidth (reflection loss <−10 dB) of several mixed-dimensional van der Waals heterostructures are as follows: (i) for 2–0 type (2D MoS2/zero-dimensional Ni nanoparticles), −19.7 dB and 2.92 GHz; (ii) for 2–1 type (2D MoS2/one-dimensional carbon nanotubes), −47.9 dB and 5.60 GHz; and (iii) for 2–3 type (2D MoS2/three-dimensional carbon layers), −69.2 dB and 4.88 GHz. As a result, by selected synthesis of different types of microstructures, we can regulate and control microwave-absorption properties in MoS2 mixed-dimensional van der Waals heterostructures. In addition, attributing to the better-defined interfaces generated in mixed-dimensional van der Waals heterostructures, we found an alternative strategy to improve microwave attenuation properties of 2–0, 2–1, and 2–3 samples by controlling interfacial contacts. The results indicate that mixed-dimensional van der Waals heterostructures provide a new stage for the next generation of microwave-absorbing materials.
