Floquet engineering of topological transitions in a twisted transition metal dichalcogenide homobilayer

Motivated by the recent experimental realization of twisted transition metal dichalcogenide bilayers, the authors study the influence of different forms of monochromatic light on such materials. They

Moir\'e-Floquet engineering of quantum materials: a review

We review recent work on quantum materials driven by light, emphasizing van der Waals systems hosting Moire superlattices. These non-equilibrium systems combine the twist-angle sensitivity of the

Effective Floquet Hamiltonians for periodically driven twisted bilayer graphene

We derive effective Floquet Hamiltonians for twisted bilayer graphene driven by circularly polarized light in two different regimes beyond the weak-drive, high frequency regime. First, we consider a

Floquet engineering of interlayer couplings: Tuning the magic angle of twisted bilayer graphene at the exit of a waveguide

We introduce a new approach that allows one complete control over the modulation of the effective twist angle change in few-layer van der Waals heterostructures by irradiating them with longitudinal



Periodically Driven Quantum Systems: Effective Hamiltonians and Engineered Gauge Fields

Topological effects can result from a material's intrinsic properties, or can be generated by external electromagnetic fields or mechanical deformations. Researchers analyze how driven quantum

Observation of phononic helical edge states in a mechanical topological insulator

The collective behavior of mechanical oscillators exhibiting the phenomenology of the quantum spin Hall effect is characterized, and the phononic edge modes are shown to be helical, and this may enable the design of topological acoustic metamaterials that can capitalize on the stability of the surface phonons as reliable wave guides.

Origin of Mott Insulating Behavior and Superconductivity in Twisted Bilayer Graphene

A remarkable recent experiment has observed Mott insulator and proximate superconductor phases in twisted bilayer graphene when electrons partly fill a nearly flat mini-band that arises a `magic'

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.

Commensuration and interlayer coherence in twisted bilayer graphene

The low energy electronic spectra of rotationally faulted graphene bilayers are studied using a long wavelength theory applicable to general commensurate fault angles. Lattice commensuration requires

A two-dimensional condensed-matter lattice model is presented which exhibits a nonzero quantization of the Hall conductance in the absence of an external magnetic field, and exhibits the so-called "parity anomaly" of (2+1)-dimensional field theories.

Correlated Phases of Bosons in Tilted Frustrated Lattices

We study the `tilting' of Mott insulators of bosons into metastable states. These are described by Hamiltonians acting on resonant subspaces, and have rich possibilities for correlated phases with

Maximally Localized Wannier Orbitals and the Extended Hubbard Model for Twisted Bilayer Graphene

We develop an effective extended Hubbard model to describe the low-energy electronic properties of the twisted bilayer graphene. By using the Bloch states in the effective continuum model and with
