A mismatch of atomic registries between single-layer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) in a two dimensional van der Waals heterostructure produces a moiré superlattice with a periodic potential, which can be fine-tuned by introducing a twist angle between the materials. This approach is promising both for controlling the interactions between the TMDs and for engineering their electronic band structures, yet direct observation of the changes to the electronic structure introduced with… Expand


Direct observation of minibands in a twisted graphene/WS2 bilayer
A new x-ray capillary technology for performing microfocused angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy with a spatial resolution of ~1 μm is introduced, and the first direct observation of minibands in the electronic structure of a twisted heterobilayer is shown using microfocused ARPES. Expand
Giant spin-splitting and gap renormalization driven by trions in single-layer WS2/h-BN heterostructures
In two-dimensional (2D) semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), new electronic phenomena such as tunable bandgaps1–3 and strongly bound excitons and trions emerge from strongExpand
Interlayer hybridization and moiré superlattice minibands for electrons and excitons in heterobilayers of transition-metal dichalcogenides
Geometrical moire patterns, generic for almost aligned bilayers of two-dimensional (2D) crystals with similar lattice structure but slightly different lattice constants, lead to zone folding andExpand
Resonantly hybridized excitons in moiré superlattices in van der Waals heterostructures
It is demonstrated that excitonic bands in MoSe2/WS2 heterostructures can hybridize, resulting in a resonant enhancement of moiré superlattice effects, which underpin strategies for band-structure engineering in semiconductor devices based on van der Waals heterostructure. Expand
Determination of band alignment in the single-layer MoS2/WSe2 heterojunction
The determination of band offsets in the heterostructure of transition metal dichalcogenides by using microbeam X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning tunnelling microscopy/spectroscopy shows that the electronic structures of WSe2 and MoS2 are well retained in their respective layers due to a weak interlayer coupling.

Determination of band offsets, hybridization, and exciton binding in 2D semiconductor heterostructures
The key unknown parameters in MoSe2/WSe2 heterobilayers are determined by using rational device design and submicrometer angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (μ-ARPES) in combination with photoluminescence and the spectrum of a rotationally aligned heterobilayer reflects a mixture of commensurate and incommensurate domains.

Tuning the electronic structure of monolayer graphene/ Mo S 2 van der Waals heterostructures via interlayer twist
We directly measure the electronic structure of twisted graphene/MoS2 van der Waals heterostructures, in which both graphene and MoS2 are monolayers. We use cathode lens microscopy and microprobeExpand
Interlayer Excitons and Band Alignment in MoS2/hBN/WSe2 van der Waals Heterostructures.
A general first-principles method is presented to compute the electronic quasi-particle (QP) band structure and excitonic binding energies of incommensurate vdWHs and demonstrates the crucial role of self-energy and electron-hole interaction effects. Expand
Signatures of moiré-trapped valley excitons in MoSe2/WSe2 heterobilayers
Results suggest that the origin of the observed effects is interlayer excitons trapped in a smooth moiré potential with inherited valley-contrasting physics, and presents opportunities to control two-dimensional moirÉ optics through variation of the twist angle. Expand
Direct Measurement of the Tunable Electronic Structure of Bilayer MoS2 by Interlayer Twist.
The electronic structure measurements reported here, including the evolution of the effective mass with twist-angle, provide new insight into the physics of twisted transition-metal dichalcogenide bilayers and serve as a guide for the practical design of MoS2 optoelectronic and spin-/valley-tronic devices.
