Monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are direct gap semiconductors with promising applications in diverse optoelectronic devices. To improve devices’ performance, recent investigations have been systematically focused on the tuning of their optical properties. However, an all-optical approach with the reversible feature is still a challenge. Here we demonstrate the tunability of the photoluminescence (PL) properties of monolayer WS2 via laser irradiation. The broad-range and…
