Abstract

Stacking atomically thin films enables artificial construction of van der Waals heterostructures with exotic functionalities such as superconductivity, the quantum Hall effect, and engineered light-matter interactions. In particular, heterobilayers composed of monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides have attracted significant interest due to their controllable interlayer coupling and trapped valley excitons in moiré superlattices.

However, the identification of twist-angle-modulated optical transitions in heterobilayers is sometimes controversial since both momentum-direct (K-K) and -indirect excitons reside on the low energy side of the bright exciton in the monolayer constituents.

Here, we attribute the optical transition at approximately 1.35 eV in the WS₂/WSe₂ heterobilayer to an indirect Γ-K transition based on a systematic analysis and comparison of experimental PL spectra with theoretical calculations. The exciton wavefunction obtained by the state-of-the-art GW-Bethe-Salpeter equation (GW-BSE) approach indicates that both the electron and hole of the exciton are contributed by the WS₂ layer. Polarization-resolved k-space imaging further confirms that the transition dipole moment of this optical transition is dominantly in-plane and is independent of the twist angle.

The calculated absorption spectrum predicts that the usually called interlayer exciton peak coming from the K-K transition is located at 1.06 eV, but with a much weaker amplitude. Our work provides new insights into understanding the steady-state and dynamic properties of twist-angle-dependent excitons in van der Waals heterostructures.
