Title: Phonon-assisted oscillatory exciton dynamics in monolayer MoSe 2

In monolayer semiconductor transition metal dichalcogenides, the exciton–phonon interaction strongly affects the photocarrier dynamics. Here, we report on an unusual oscillatory enhancement of the neutral exciton photoluminescence with the excitation laser frequency in monolayer MoSe 2. The frequency of oscillation matches that of the M-point longitudinal acoustic phonon, LA(M), suggesting the significance of zone-edge acoustic phonons and hence the deformation potential in exciton-phonon coupling in MoSe 2. Moreover, oscillatory behavior is observed in the steady-state emission linewidth and in time-resolved PLE data, which reveals variation with excitation energy in the exciton lifetime. These results clearly expose the key role played by phonons in the exciton formation and relaxation dynamics of two-dimensional van der Waals semiconductors.
