The rhenium-based transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are atypical of the TMD family due to their highly anisotropic crystalline structure and are recognized as promising materials for two dimensional heterostructure devices. The nature of the band gap (direct or indirect) for bulk, few and single layer forms of ReS$_2$ is of particular interest, due to its comparatively weak inter-planar interaction. However, the degree of inter-layer interaction and the question of whether a transition from indirect to direct gap is observed on reducing thickness (as in other TMDs) are controversial. Read More

ReSe2 and ReS2 are unusual compounds amongst the layered transition metal dichalcogenides as a result of their low symmetry, with a characteristic in-plane anisotropy due to in-plane rhenium chains. They preserve inversion symmetry independent of the number of layers and, in contrast to more well-known transition metal dichalcogenides, bulk and few-monolayer Re-TMD compounds have been proposed to behave as electronically and vibrational decoupled layers. Here, we probe for the first time the electronic band structure of bulk ReSe2 by direct nanoscale angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Read More

Wide quantum dots were fabricated from multiple quantum well structures based on Zn_{1-x}Mn_xTe/ZnTe (x = 0.076) dilute magnetic semiconductors and were investigated via photoluminescence (PL) in a magnetic field. Calculations taking into account the strain in the two types of structure enabled the PL transitions to be identified and show that the dominant emission in the MQWs is from heavy-hole (hh) excitons whereas in the quantum dots, the removal of the strain in the barrier layers generates a large biaxial tensile strain in the quantum wells which shifts the light-hole (lh) exciton to lower energy than the hh exciton.
