The predicted formation of moire superlattices leading to confined excitonic states in heterostructures formed by stacking two lattice mismatched transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) monolayers was recently experimentally confirmed. Such periodic potential in TMD heterostructure functions as a diffusion barrier that affects the energy transport and dynamics of interlayer excitons (electron and hole spatially concentrated in different monolayers). Understanding the transport of excitons under… Expand

Observation of moiré excitons in WSe2/WS2 heterostructure superlattices
Moiré superlattice exciton states are observed in WSe2/WS2 heterostructures with closely aligned layers, described by a theoretical model in which the periodic moiré potential is much stronger than the exciton kinetic energy and generates multiple flat exciton minibands. Expand

A periodic modulation of the local bandgap in the rotationally aligned MoS2/WSe2 bilayer creates a 2D electronic superlattice and quantitatively determine the influence of interlayer coupling on the electronic structure of the hetero-bilayer at different critical points. Expand
