The study of strongly interacting electrons in moiré heterostructures of semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides (sTMDs), such as WSe2 and WS2, has led to the discovery of long sought-after quantum phases and behavior. In addition, strong light-matter interactions in sTMDs give rise to robust optically active excitons and their charged complexes. However, a system of strongly interacting excitons in TMDs remains largely unexplored.
Based on our recent results, I will present a system of strongly interacting moiré excitons and electrons as a rich platform to study and create quantum matter in a driven-dissipative setting. Furthermore, due to the eventual conversion of excitons to photons, this system is also a many-body quantum open system simulator to uncover novel cooperative phenomena.
