Title: Magneto-optical spectra of transition metal dichalcogenides: A comparative study

Following our previous work [Ho et al., Phys. Rev. B 89, 155316 (2014)], we systematically calculate the magneto-optical properties of various transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers. The intrinsic spin-orbit coupling gives rise to the spin-split electronic states, while a perpendicular magnetic field further induces a valley splitting. In magneto-optical spectra with linearly polarized light, spectral features are spin and valley-polarized. Compounds are different from one another in terms of transition energies and appearance of twin peaks. Our numerical results can serve as a guide for future experimental identification.
