photoexcited carriers interact with lattice vibrations in thin films of the layered WSe2
Jul 2017

A team of researchers from the Structural and Electronic Surface Dynamics group of the FHI Department of Physical Chemistry, Berlin, and the MPI for Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Hamburg, have published an outstanding article in the Physical Review Letters, investigating the interactions of photoexcited carriers with lattice vibrations in thin films of the layered transition metal dichalcogenide WSe2. Employing femtosecond electron diffraction with monocrystalline samples and first-principles [more...]
