Moiré bands in twisted double-layer graphene
This work addresses the electronic structure of a twisted two-layer graphene system, showing that in its continuum Dirac model the moiré pattern periodicity leads to moirÉ Bloch bands.
Anomalous hall effect
We present a review of experimental and theoretical studies of the anomalous Hall effect (AHE), focusing on recent developments that have provided a more complete framework for understanding this
Theory of ferromagnetic (III, Mn) V semiconductors
The body of research on (III,Mn)V diluted magnetic semiconductors initiated during the 1990's has concentrated on three major fronts: i) the microscopic origins and fundamental physics of the
Observation of Majorana fermions in ferromagnetic atomic chains on a superconductor
High-resolution spectroscopic imaging techniques show that the onset of superconductivity, which gaps the electronic density of states in the bulk of the Fe chains, is accompanied by the appearance of zero-energy end-states, providing strong evidence for the formation of a topological phase and edge-bound Majorana fermions in atomic chains.
Photonic topological insulators.
It is shown that metacrystals-superlattices of metamaterials with judiciously designed properties-provide a platform for designing topologically non-trivial photonic states, similar to those identified for condensed-matter topological insulators.
Universal intrinsic spin Hall effect.
It is argued that in a high-mobility two-dimensional electron system with substantial Rashba spin-orbit coupling, a spin current that flows perpendicular to the charge current is intrinsic, and the intrinsic spin-Hall conductivity has a universal value for zero quasiparticle spectral broadening.
Hubbard Model Physics in Transition Metal Dichalcogenide Moiré Bands.
It is theoretically shown that isolated flat moiré bands described by generalized triangular lattice Hubbard models are present in twisted transition metal dichalcogenide heterobilayers.
Intrinsic and Rashba spin-orbit interactions in graphene sheets
Starting from a microscopic tight-binding model and using second-order perturbation theory, we derive explicit expressions for the intrinsic and Rashba spin-orbit interaction induced gaps in the
Topological Insulators in Twisted Transition Metal Dichalcogenide Homobilayers.
It is shown that Δ(r) has a topologically nontrivial skyrmion lattice texture in real space, and that the topmost moiré valence bands provide a realization of the Kane-Mele quantum spin-Hall model, i.e., the two-dimensional time-reversal-invariant topological insulator.
Superconductors, orbital magnets and correlated states in magic-angle bilayer graphene
This study shows that broken-symmetry states, interaction-driven insulators, orbital magnets, states with non-zero Chern numbers and superconducting domes occur frequently across a wide range of moiré flat band fillings, including close to charge neutrality.
