Monolayer group VI transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have recently emerged as promising candidates for photonic and opto-valleytronic applications. The optoelectronic properties of these atomically-thin semiconducting crystals are strongly governed by the tightly bound electron-hole pairs such as excitons and trions (charged excitons).
The anomalous spin and valley configurations at the conduction band edges in monolayer WS₂ give rise to even more fascinating valley many-body complexes. Here we find that the indirect Q valley in the first Brillouin zone of monolayer WS₂ plays a critical role in the formation of a new excitonic state, which has not been well studied.
By employing a high-quality h-BN encapsulated WS₂ field-effect transistor, we are able to switch the electron concentration within K-Q valleys at conduction band edges. Consequently, a distinct emission feature could be excited at the high electron doping region. Such feature has a competing population with the K valley trion, and experiences nonlinear power-law response and lifetime dynamics under doping.
Our findings open up a new avenue for the study of valley many-body physics and quantum optics in semiconducting 2D materials, as well as provide a promising way of valley manipulation for next-generation entangled photonic devices.
