This manuscript reports temperature- and power-dependence of in-plane E12g and out-of-plane A1g Raman modes in a continuous WS2 monolayer film (CWMF) prepared using low pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD), suspended on a perforated substrate. The frequencies of these two phonon modes vary linearly with temperature (77–523 K) and power (2–14 μW), and the modes soften as local temperature increases. The first-order temperature coefficients for E12g and A1g modes are 0.0124 and 0.0112 cm−1/K, respectively, and power coefficients are 0.1228 and 0.1381 cm−1/μW. Using the 1D Balandin's approach, we have calculated the thermal conductivity of the suspended CWMF at room temperature to be ca. 20 and 16 W/mK when considering the E12g and A1g modes, respectively. Our results provide thermal properties values of CWMF, which are very important for developing monolayer WS2 electronic devices.
