Dark excitons in monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides: prediction, probing and manipulation

Monolayers of semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides are two-dimensional direct-gap systems that host tightly-bound excitons with an internal degree of freedom corresponding to the valley of the constituting carriers. Strong spin-orbit interaction and the resulting ordering of the spin-split subbands in the valence and conduction bands make the lowest-lying excitons in WX2 (X being S or Se) spin-forbidden and optically dark. We theoretically demonstrate the existence of two types of dark excitons – “Grey” and “Dark”, which appear due to the intrinsic exchange interaction in the monolayer. We describe the properties of these excitons and propose the mechanisms of their optical activation. With polarization-resolved photoluminescence experiments performed on a WSe2 monolayer encapsulated in a hexagonal boron nitride, we show how the intrinsic exchange interaction in combination with the applied in-plane and/or out-of-plane magnetic fields enables one to probe and manipulate the valley degree of freedom of the dark excitons.
