We develop an analytical theory for edge states in monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides based on a general boundary condition for a two-band ${\bf kp}$-Hamiltonian in case of uncoupled valleys. Taking into account {\it edge} spin-orbit interaction we reveal that edge states, in general, have linear dispersion that is determined by three real phenomenological parameters in the boundary condition. In absence of the edge spin-orbit interaction, edge states are described by a single real…

Electronic Spectrum and Optical Properties of Quantum Wires Made from Transition Metal Dichalcogenides

The energy spectrum and optical absorption in a quantum wire of monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides in the shape of a straight strip are investigated theoretically. It is established that

Size and shape effects in the orbital magnetization of TMDs monolayers

It is shown that the geometrical and topological properties of the specimen, as well as the BCs, play an important role in the problem of valley orbital magnetization even for a macroscopic sample.

Collective excitations in a two-component one-dimensional massless Dirac plasma

We study spectra of long wavelength plasma oscillations in a system of two energy splitted one-dimensional (1D) massless Dirac fermion subbands coupled by spin-orbit interaction. Such a system may be
