Although emergent phenomena driven by electronic reconstructions in oxide heterostructures have been intensively discussed, such interface-driven phenomena in shaping the electronic properties has not been well established in van der Waals heterointerfaces. By diminishing the material thickness and forming a heterointerface, we observed two types of charge-ordering transitions in monolayer VSe2 on graphene substrates. Comprehensive combination of ARPES, STM, and renormalization group analysis enable us to reveal the low-dimensionality and the heterointerface play important roles in enhancing charge density wave temperature to 350 K contrasted to the 105 K in bulk VSe2 and in driving the unexpected metal-insulator transition at 135 K in the family of monolayered transition metal dichalcogenides. We will discuss implications of our observations in comparison with the similar results reported by two other groups.This work is published in Nano Letters 18, 5432 (2018).
