Abstract

van der Waals heterostructures composed of transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers (TMDCs) are characterized by their truly rich excitonic properties which are determined by their structural, geometric, and electronic properties: In contrast to pure monolayers, electrons and holes can be hosted in different materials, resulting in highly tunable dipolar many-particle complexes. However, for genuine spatially indirect excitons, the dipolar nature is usually accompanied by a notable quenching of the exciton oscillator strength. Via electric and magnetic field dependent measurements, we demonstrate that a slightly biased pristine bilayer MoS2 hosts strongly dipolar excitons, which preserve a strong oscillator strength. We scrutinize their giant dipole moment, and shed further light on their orbital and valley physics via bias-dependent magnetic field measurements.
