Scanning gate microscopy mapping of edge current and branched electron flow in a transition metal dichalcogenide nanoribbon and quantum point contact

15 May 2020 Prokop M. Gut D. Nowak M. P.

We study scanning gate microscopy (SGM) conductance mapping of a $\mathrm{MoS}_2$ zigzag ribbon exploiting tight-binding and continuum models. We show that, even though the edge modes of a pristine nanoribbon are robust to backscattering on the potential induced by the tip, the conductance mapping reveals presence of both the edge modes and the quantized spin- and valley-current carrying modes...
