Observation of interlayer, charge transfer (CT) excitons in van der Waals heterostructures (vdWHs) based on 2D-2D systems has been well investigated.

This issue of localizing the CT excitons can be overcome via making nanoplate-2D material heterostructures (N2DHs) where one of the components is a spatially quantum confined medium. Here, we demonstrate the formation of CT excitons in a mixed dimensional system comprising MoSe2 and WSe2 monolayers and CdSe/CdS-based core/shell nanoplates (NPLs). Spectral signatures of CT excitons in our N2DHs were resolved locally at the 2D/single-NPL heterointerface using tip-enhanced photoluminescence (TEPL) at room temperature. By varying both the 2D material and the shell thickness of the NPLs and applying an out-of-plane electric field, the exciton resonance energy was tuned by up to 100 meV. Our finding is a significant step toward the realization of highly tunable N2DH-based next-generation photonic devices.

Abstract

Observation of interlayer, charge transfer (CT) excitons in van der Waals heterostructures (vdWHs) based on 2D-2D systems has been well investigated. While conceptually interesting, these charge transfer excitons are highly delocalized and spatially localizing them requires twisting layers at very specific angles. This issue of localizing the CT excitons can be overcome via making nanoplate-2D material heterostructures (N2DHs) where one of the components is a spatially quantum confined medium. Here, we demonstrate the formation of CT excitons in a mixed dimensional system comprising MoSe2 and WSe2 monolayers and CdSe/CdS-based core/shell nanoplates (NPLs). Spectral signatures of CT excitons in our N2DHs were resolved locally at the 2D/single-NPL heterointerface using tip-enhanced photoluminescence (TEPL) at room temperature. By varying both the 2D material and the shell thickness of the NPLs and applying an out-of-plane electric field, the exciton resonance energy was tuned by up to 100 meV. Our finding is a significant step toward the realization of highly tunable N2DH-based next-generation photonic devices.
