We show that the dipole moment of an exciton is uniquely determined by the quantum geometry of its eigenstates, and demonstrate its intimate connection with a quantity we call the dipole curvature. The dipole curvature arises naturally in semiclassical dynamics of an exciton in an electric field, adding a term additional to the anomalous velocity coming from the Berry's curvature. In a uniform electric field this contributes a drift velocity akin to that expected for excitons in crossed…

Anomalous exciton transport in response to a uniform in-plane electric field
Excitons are neutral objects, that, naively, should have no response to a uniform, electric field. Could the Berry curvature of the underlying electronic bands alter this conclusion? In this work, we
Quantum-metric-enabled exciton condensate in double twisted bilayer graphene
Flat-band systems are a promising platform for realizing exotic collective ground states with spontaneously broken symmetry because the electron-electron interactions dominate the kinetic energy. A
Scattering of Magnons at Graphene Quantum-Hall-Magnet Junctions.
It is proposed that valley waves generated at ν=-1|1 junctions and magnons can be used in combination to probe the spin or valley flavor structure of QHM states at integer and fractional filling factors.

Filtering the photoluminescence spectra of atomically thin semiconductors with graphene
It is shown that graphene, directly stacked onto TMD monolayers, enables single and narrow-line photoluminescence arising solely from TMD neutral excitons, which establishes TMD/graphene heterostructures as a unique set of optoelectronic building blocks that are suitable for electroluminescent systems emitting visible and near-infrared photons at near THz rate with linewidths approaching the homogeneous limit.
Interlayer excitons in van der Waals heterostructures: Binding energy, Stark shift, and field-induced dissociation
This paper calculates interlayer exciton binding energies, Stark shifts, and dissociation rates for six different transition metal dichalcogenide vdWHs using a numerical procedure based on exterior complex scaling (ECS), and obtains an analytical weak-field expression for the exciton dissociation rate.
Shedding light on moiré excitons: A first-principles perspective
How vertical electric field can be tuned to control the position, polarity, emission energy, and hybridization strength of the moiré excitons is explored and it is predicted that alternating electric fields could modulate the dipole moments of hybridized moirétons and suppress their diffusion in moirÉ lattices.
Spin–layer locking of interlayer excitons trapped in moiré potentials
The optical properties of two species of localized interlayer excitons in a van der Waals heterostructure are shown to depend on their spin–valley–layer configuration, enabling the identification of the moiré atomic registry and offering insights for engineering quantum states in two-dimensional materials.
Tuning transport across MoS2/graphene interfaces via as-grown lateral heterostructures
An unexploited property of graphene-based heterojunctions is the tunable doping of the junction via electrostatic gating. This unique property may be key in advancing electronic transport across
Twist-angle-dependent interlayer exciton diffusion in WS2–WSe2 heterobilayers
Interlayer exciton dynamics in a van der Waals heterostructure is found to be modulated by the twist angle between the atomically thin layers, elucidating the effect of moiré potentials on exciton motion and providing guidelines to design quantum photonics devices based on 2D materials.

We theoretically study the role of the Berry curvature on neutral and charged excitons in two-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenides. The Berry curvature arises due to a strong coupling between
