It has been recently predicted that the interplay between Coulomb interactions and Berry curvature can
produce interesting optical phenomena in topologically nontrivial two-dimensional insulators. Here, we present a theory of the interband optical absorption for three-dimensional, doped Weyl semimetals. We find that the Berry curvature, Coulomb interactions, and the nonlinearity in the single-particle energy spectrum can together enable a light-induced valley polarization. We support and supplement our numerical results with an analytical toy model calculation, which unveils topologically nontrivial Mahan excitons with nonzero vorticity.
