We theoretically investigate twisted structures where each layer is composed of a strongly correlated material. In particular, we study a twisted t-J model of cuprate multilayers within the slave-boson mean field theory. This treatment encompasses the Mott physics at small doping and self consistently generates d-wave pairing. Furthermore, including the correct inter-layer tunneling form factor consistent with the symmetry of the Cu dx2−y2 orbital proves to be crucial for the phase diagram. We… Expand

Josephson effects in twisted cuprate bilayers
Twisted bilayers of high-Tc cuprate superconductors have been argued to form topological phases with spontaneously broken time reversal symmetry T for certain twist angles. With the goal of helpingExpand
Josephson effects in twisted nodal superconductors
Motivated by the recent proposals for unconventional emergent physics in twisted bilayers of nodal superconductors, we study the peculiarities of the Josephson effect at the twisted interface betweenExpand

Quantum anomalous Hall effect from intertwined moiré bands
Electron correlation and topology are two central threads of modern condensed matter physics. Semiconductor moiré materials provide a highly tunable platform for studies of electron correlation.Expand
Unconventional superconductivity in magic-angle graphene superlattices
The realization of intrinsic unconventional superconductivity is reported—which cannot be explained by weak electron–phonon interactions—in a two-dimensional superlattice created by stacking two sheets of graphene that are twisted relative to each other by a small angle. Expand
WSe2/WS2 moir\'e superlattices: a new Hubbard model simulator
The Hubbard model, first formulated by physicist John Hubbard in the 1960s, is a simple theoretical model of interacting quantum particles in a lattice. The model is thought to capture the essentialExpand
Amperean pairing and the pseudogap phase of cuprate superconductors
The enigmatic pseudogap phase in underdoped cuprate high T_c superconductors has long been recognized as a central puzzle of the T_c problem. Recent data show that the pseudogap is likely a distinctExpand
Doping a Mott insulator: Physics of high-temperature superconductivity
This article reviews the physics of high-temperature superconductors from the point of view of the doping of a Mott insulator. The basic electronic structure of cuprates is reviewed, emphasizing theExpand
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. Expand
Emergent ferromagnetism near three-quarters filling in twisted bilayer graphene
Evidence is presented that near three-quarters of the filling of the conduction miniband, these enhanced interactions drive the twisted bilayer graphene into a ferromagnetic state, and measurements suggest that the system may be an incipient Chern insulator. Expand
