Title Electronic Raman scattering in graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides
Abstract In my talk I will review recent progress in the use of Raman scattering as a probe of electronic excitations in two-dimensional crystals. In the first part of my talk I will discuss experiments which aim at directly observing electronic excitations in graphene-based devices [1]. I will show in particular that symmetry-resolved Raman experiments can selectively probe chiral excitations, offering promising venues for this technique as a probe of non-trivial bulk and surface electron states. In the second part of my talk I will present recent Raman results on 2D metallic transition metal dichalcogenides (NbSe2 and TaSe2) in their bulk and few-layer form. I will discuss fingerprints of charge density wave order (CDW) and superconductivity (SC) and I will show that the coupling between CDW and SC orders enables a Raman coupling to the amplitude mode of the superconducting order parameter, a condensed matter analog of the Higgs mode [2]. If time allows I will also present recent THz Kerr and third-harmonic generation experiments which aim at probing the Higgs mode in other superconductors [3]. [1] E. Riccardi et al. Phys. Rev.
