    © 2016 IOP Publishing Ltd.Few-layer thick MoSe2 and WSe2 possess non-trivial spin textures with sizable spin splitting due to the inversion symmetry breaking embedded in the crystal structure and strong spin-orbit coupling. We report a spin-resolved photoemission study of MoSe2 and WSe2 thin film samples epitaxially grown on a bilayer graphene substrate. We only found spin polarization in the single-and trilayer samples-not in the bilayer sample-mostly along the out-of-plane direction of the sam…Read more
