Interlayer excitons and Band Alignment in MoS2/hBN/WSe2 van der Waals Heterostructures — •Simone Latini — Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark

Van der Waals Heterostructures (vdWHs) are a unique platform for the realization of novel (opto)-electronic devices with embedded multi-functionality. Combining two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors with misaligned band edges can lead to the formation of photo-excited electrons and holes localized in distinct layers, which result into interlayer excitons. Understanding the energetics behind the formation of interlayer excitons is the first step towards the engineering of charge separation processes in photovoltaic devices and photodetectors. The contribution of our work is then twofold. (I) We calculate, for the first time, the interlayer exciton binding energies in complex vdWHs, specifically MoS2/hBN/WSe2 heterostructures, using a first-principles approach. The binding energy is of extreme technological importance as it is a measure of how strongly the electron-hole pair is bound and hence how easily it can be separated. (II) We obtain accurate electronic band edges at the interface between the layers of the vdWHs, a task which could not yet be accomplished with any available state of the art technique. Importantly, the accuracy of our calculated exciton binding energies and band edges is confirmed by a striking agreement with experimental data on photoluminesce of interlayer excitons in MoS2/hBN/WSe2 heterostructures.
