In the recent years, research in the field of two-dimensional materials has intensified a lot. Besides graphene, the most prominent representatives for this field are the transition metal dichalchogenides. These materials exhibit interesting physics in the monolayer, such as spin-valley locking, and by combining them to heterostructures new excitonic properties emerge.
Here, we study MoSe2-WSe2 heterostructures, which create a type-II band alignment. This results in a spatial separation of the electron-hole pairs, leading to the formation of interlayer excitons (IEXs). In low-temperature photoluminescence measurements in magnetic fields up to 30T, we observe a giant valley-selective splitting and a resulting near-unity valley polarization. Furthermore, we probe the valley dynamics of the IEX in dependence of the magnetic field, detecting very long lifetimes in contrast to intralayer excitons. We are able to observe the build-up of the valley polarization after unpolarized excitation, revealing different dynamics and lifetimes for the different valleys.
