Zeeman-Induced Valley-Sensitive Photocurrent in Monolayer MoS_{2}.

Summary of "Zeeman-Induced Valley-Sensitive Photocurrent in Monolayer MoS_{2}."

The control of the valley degree of freedom lies at the core of interest in monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides, where specific valley-spin excitation can be created using circularly polarized light. Measurement and manipulation of the valley index has also been achieved, but mainly with purely optical methods. Here, in monolayer MoS_{2}, we identify a response to the valley polarization of excitons in the longitudinal electrical transport when the valley degeneracy is broken by an out-of-plane magnetic field B_{z}. The spin information is also simultaneously determined with spin-sensitive contacts. In the presence of B_{z}, a significant modulation of the photocurrent is observed as a function of the circular polarization state of the excitation. We attribute this effect to unbalanced transport of valley-polarized trions induced by the opposite Zeeman shifts of two (K and K^{'}) valleys. Our interpretation is supported by the contrasting behavior in bilayer MoS_{2}, as well as the observed doping and spatial dependence of the valley photocurrent.

Still images produced from radiation-sensitive materials (sensitive to light, electron beams, or nuclear radiation), generally by means of the chemical action of light on a sensitive film, paper, glass, or metal. Photographs may be positive or negative, opaque or transparent.

An acute infection caused by the RIFT VALLEY FEVER VIRUS, an RNA arthropod-borne virus, affecting domestic animals and humans. In animals, symptoms include HEPATITIS; abortion (ABORTION, VETERINARY); and DEATH. In humans, symptoms range from those of a flu-like disease to hemorrhagic fever, ENCEPHALITIS, or BLINDNESS.

Infection with a fungus of the genus COCCIDIOIDES, endemic to the SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES. It is sometimes called valley fever but should not be confused with RIFT VALLEY FEVER. Infection is caused by inhalation of airborne, fungal particles known as arthroconidia, a form of FUNGAL SPORES. A primary form is an acute, benign, self-limited respiratory infection. A secondary form is a virulent, severe, chronic, progressive granulomatous disease with systemic involvement. It can be detected by use of COCCIDIOIDIN.

A subgroup of the genus FLAVIVIRUS which comprises a number of viral species that are the etiologic agents of human encephalitis in many different geographical regions. These include Japanese encephalitis virus (ENCEPHALITIS VIRUS, JAPANESE), St. Louis encephalitis virus (ENCEPHALITIS VIRUS, ST. LOUIS), Murray Valley encephalitis virus (ENCEPHALITIS VIRUS, MURRAY VALLEY), and WEST NILE VIRUS.
