Fast exciton annihilation by capture of electrons or holes by defects via Auger scattering in monolayer metal dichalcogenides


The strong Coulomb interactions and the small exciton radii in two-dimensional metal dichalcogenides can result in very fast capture of electrons and holes of excitons by mid-gap defects from Auger processes. In the Auger processes considered here, an exciton is annihilated at a defect site with the capture of the electron (or the hole) by the defect and… (More)
