A generally accepted mechanism for blinking in quantum dots involves random switching between neutral and charged states (or is accompanied by fluctuations in charge-carrier traps), which substantially alters the dynamics of radiative and non-radiative decay. Here, we uncover a new type of blinking effect in vertically stacked, two-dimensional semiconductor heterostructures, which consist of two distinct monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) that are weakly coupled by van der Waals forces. Unlike zero-dimensional or one-dimensional systems, two-dimensional TMD heterostructures show a correlated blinking effect, comprising randomly switching bright, neutral and dark states. Fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy analyses show that a bright state occurring in one monolayer will simultaneously lead to a dark state in the other monolayer, owing to an intermittent interlayer carrier-transfer process. Our findings suggest that bilayer van der Waals heterostructures provide unique platforms for the study of charge-transfer dynamics and non-equilibrium-state physics, and could see application as correlated light emitters in quantum technology.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Seletskiy, Denis V.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Xiong, Qihua</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Xiong, Qihua</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Raab, Timo</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Schmidt, Jan F.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Lu, Xin</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Diederichs, Carole</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:creator>Gao, Weibo</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Correlated fluorescence blinking in two-dimensional semiconductor heterostructures</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Gao, Weibo</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Seletskiy, Denis V.</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Diederichs, Carole</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Zhao, Weijie</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dc:creator>Zhao, Weijie</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Xu, Weigao</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Liu, Weiwei</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Lu, Xin</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
