Summary of "Three-Dimensional Resonant Exciton in Monolayer Tungsten Diselenide Actuated by Spin-Orbit Coupling."

The intricate features of many-body interactions and spin-orbit coupling play a significant role in numerous physcial phenomena. Particularly in two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (2D-TMDs), excitonic dynamics are a key phenomenon that promises opportunities for diverse range of device applications. Here, we report the direct observation of a visible-range three-dimensional resonant exciton and its associated charged exciton in monolayer tungsten diselenide, as compared to monolayer molybdenum disulfide. A comprehensive experimental study that includes high-resolution TEM, Raman, high-resolution spectroscopic ellipsometry over a wide temperature range down to 4K, high-energy temperature and excitation power-dependent photoluminescence spectroscopy has been conducted. It is supported by first-principles calculations to unravel the influence of spin-orbit coupling in the formation of the resonant exciton and to identify its in-plane and out-of-plane features. Furthermore, we study the impact of temperature and thickness on the spin-orbit coupling strength in 2D-TMDs. This work is crucial in creating a platform in the fundamental understanding of high-energy resonant exciton in layered two-dimensional systems, and that such high-energy optoelectronic features make them an increasingly attractive candidate for novel electronic and optoelectronic applications particularly in the aspects of solar cells and light-emitting diodes via the manipulation of excitonic states.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inorganic compounds that contain tungsten as an integral part of the molecule.

Tungsten. A metallic element with the atomic symbol W, atomic number 74, and atomic weight 183.85. It is used in many manufacturing applications, including increasing the hardness, toughness, and tensile strength of steel; manufacture of filaments for incandescent light bulbs; and in contact points for automotive and electrical apparatus.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.

Three-dimensional computed tomographic imaging with the added dimension of time, to follow motion during imaging.
