Twisted bilayer graphene near the magic angle 1 – 4 exhibits rich electron-correlation physics, displaying insulating 3 – 6 , magnetic 7 , 8 and superconducting phases 4 – 6 . The electronic bands of this system were predicted 1 , 2 to narrow markedly 9 , 10 near the magic angle, leading to a variety of possible symmetry-breaking ground states 11 – 17 . Here, using measurements of the local electronic compressibility, we show that these correlated phases originate from a high-energy state with… Expand

Charge-order-enhanced capacitance in semiconductor moiré superlattices
TLDR
Capacitance is established as a powerful probe of the correlated states in semiconductor moiré systems and can be further controlled via sample–gate coupling and demonstrate control of these states via sample-gate coupling. Expand

It is shown how topological textures can mitigate Coulomb repulsion and provide a previously unexplored route to superconductivity. Expand
Chern insulators, van Hove singularities and topological flat bands in magic-angle twisted bilayer graphene
TLDR
Transport measurements reveal a succession of doping-induced Lifshitz transitions that are accompanied by van Hove singularities, which facilitate the emergence of correlation-induced gaps and topologically non-trivial subbands in twisted bilayer graphene. Expand
Chirality-Induced Giant Unidirectional Magnetoresistance in Twisted Bilayer Graphene
TLDR
The band structure topology (asymmetry), which leads to a direction-sensitive mean free path, is proposed as a useful way to anticipate the UMR effect, which provides a probe for chirality and band flatness in the twisted bilayers. Expand
Competing Zero-Field Chern Insulators in Superconducting Twisted Bilayer Graphene.
TLDR
These observations demonstrate that interaction-induced symmetry breaking leads to zero-field ground states that include almost degenerate and closely competing Chern insulators, and that states with larger Chern numbers couple most strongly to the B field. Expand
