The Berry curvature dipole is a physical quantity that is expected to allow various quantum geometrical phenomena in a range of solid-state systems. Monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides provide an exceptional platform to modulate and investigate the Berry curvature dipole through strain. Here, we theoretically demonstrate and experimentally verify for monolayer MoS_{2} the generation of valley orbital magnetization as a response to an in-plane electric field due to the Berry curvature… Expand
