In this study, we report a simple yet efficient chemical doping strategy to modulate the optical properties of monolayer tungsten disulfide (WS2). As a demonstrative example, the chemical doped monolayer WS2 exhibits remarkably PL enhancement, which is about one order of magnitude higher than pristine WS2. This outstanding PL enhancement is attributed to the fact that the excess electron which promotes the formation of electron bound trions is effectively decreased through charge transfer from WS2 to chemical dopant. Furthermore, an improved degree of circular polarization from ~9.0% to ~41.5% is also observed in the chemical doped monolayer WS2. Our work illustrates a feasible strategy to manipulate optical properties of TMDCs via exciton modulation, making TMDCs promising candidates for versatile semiconductor-based photonic devices.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/88348
