Fast Relaxation of Photo-Excited Carriers in 2-D Transition Metal Dichalcogenides


We predict a fast relaxation of photo-excited carriers in monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides, which is mediated by the emission of longitudinal optical (LO) and homopolar (HP) phonons. By evaluating Born effective charges for MoS2, MoSe2, WS2, and WSe2, we find that, due to the polar coupling of electrons with LO phonons, and the HP phonons lattice… (More)
