ABSTRACT: We report polarization resolved photoluminescence from monolayer MoS2, a
two-dimensional, non-centrosymmetric crystal with direct energy gaps at two
different valleys in momentum space. The inherent chiral optical selectivity
allows exciting one of these valleys and close to 90% polarized emission at 4K
is observed with 40% polarization remaining at 300K. The high polarization
degree of the emission remains unchanged in transverse magnetic fields up to 9T
indicating robust, selective valley excitation.
