Van der Waals heterostuctures, made from stacks of two-dimensional materials, exhibit unique light-matter interactions and are promising for novel optoelectronic devices. The performance of such devices is governed by near-field coupling through, e.g., interlayer charge and/or energy transfer. New concepts and experimental methodologies are needed to properly describe two-dimensional heterointerfaces. Here, we report on interlayer charge and energy transfer in atomically thin metal (graphene…
