The rise of a vast family of two-dimensional materials (such as graphene, boron nitride and transition metal dichalcogenides) with unique electronic and optical properties has opened exciting perspectives for the design and study of van der Waals heterostructures [1]. The behavior of photoexcited carriers and excitons in such heterostructures is strongly affected by near-field interactions, such as interlayer charge transfer [2] and/or energy transfer [3,4]. Unravelling the efficiency and microscopic mechanisms of charge and energy transfer at atomically sharp heterointerfaces is of utmost importance for optoelectronic and energy-related applications. In this presentation, I will start with a general introduction to our activities on two-dimensional materials at IPCMS and focus on recent optical studies of charge and energy transfer in hybrid and van der Waals and heterostructures [4,5].
