We investigate the behavior of low-energy electrons in two-dimensional molybdenum disulfide when submitted to an external magnetic field. Highly degenerate Landau levels form in the material, between which light-induced excitations are possible. The dependence of excitations on light polarization and energy is explicitly determined, and it is shown that it is possible to induce valley and spin polarization, i.e. to excite electrons of selected valley and spin. Whereas the effective low-energy…

Magnetic control of valley and spin degrees of freedom via magnetotransport in n -type monolayer MoS2
It is predicted that the valley- and spin-resolved Hall conductance obeys the same rule as that for conventional fermions, but the first Hall plateau and the longitudinal charge conductance in low energies are fully valley/spin-polarized, which may produce a pure valley/ spin current.

It is shown that through modifying atomic d-orbitals conduction and valence band states by an applied electric field, one can determine and control the impact of a magnetic field on the optical response of these materials.
Tunable spin and valley dependent magneto-optical absorption in molybdenum disulfide quantum dots
A new class of SPSs based on carriers spatially localized in two-dimensional monolayer transition metal dichalcogenide quantum dots (QDs) is reported, which offers the possibility of tuning the magneto-optical properties at will, subject to the robust spin-coupled valley polarization.
