Switching between Mott-Hubbard and Hund physics in moir\'e quantum simulators

Mott-Hubbard and Hund electron correlations have been realized thus far in separate classes of materials. Here, we show that a single moir´e homobilayer encompasses both kinds of physics in a

Moiré engineering of spin–orbit coupling in twisted platinum diselenide

We study the electronic structure and correlated phases of twisted bilayers of platinum diselenide using large-scale ab initio simulations combined with the functional renormalization group. PtSe2 is

Efficient ab initio many-body calculations based on sparse modeling of Matsubara Green's function

This lecture note reviews recently proposed sparse-modeling approaches for efficient ab initio many-body calculations based on the data compression of Green's functions and describes a numerical library for the IR basis and the sparse sampling method, sparse-ir, and provides its sample codes.

Merging numerical renormalization group and intermediate representation to compactify two- and three-point correlators

The vanguard of many-body theory is nowadays dealing with the full frequency dynamics of n -point Green’s functions for n higher than two. Numerically, these objects easily become a memory

sparse-ir: optimal compression and sparse sampling of many-body propagators

Sparse-ir is introduced, a collection of libraries to handle imaginary-time propagators, a central object in quantum many-body calculations, and IR and sparse sampling are packaged into stand-alone, easy-to-use Python, Julia and Fortran libraries, which can readily be included into existing software.

Hybrid s-wave superconductivity in CrB$_2$

In a metal with multiple Fermi pockets, the formation of s -wave superconductivity can be conventional due to electron-phonon coupling or unconventional due to spin fluctuations. We analyze the



Phonon renormalization in reconstructed MoS2 moiré superlattices

A low-energy continuum model for phonons is developed that overcomes the outstanding challenge of calculating the properties of large moiré supercells and successfully captures the essential experimental observations and promotes a comprehensive and unified understanding of the structural, optical and electronic properties of moirÉ superlattices.

Simulation of Hubbard model physics in WSe2/WS2 moiré superlattices

A new solid-state platform based on moiré superlattices that can be used to simulate problems in strong-correlation physics that are described by triangular-lattice Hubbard models is established.

Classifying superconductivity in Moiré graphene superlattices

Extracted superconducting parameters show that only s -wave and a specific kind of p -wave symmetries are likely to be dominant in bilayer graphene Moiré superlattices, and more experimental data is required to distinguish between the s - and remaining p - waves as well as the suspected two-band superconductivity in these 2D superlATTices.

Correlated Insulating States in Twisted Double Bilayer Graphene.

The findings suggest that correlated insulators are favored when a moiré flat band is spectrally isolated, and are consistent with a mean-field picture in which insulating states are established by breaking both spin and valley symmetries at 1/4 and 3/4 band filling and valley polarization alone at1/2 band filling.

Prediction of a Large-Gap and Switchable Kane-Mele Quantum Spin Hall Insulator.

This system realizes the paradigmatic Kane-Mele model for quantum spin Hall insulators in a potentially exfoliable two-dimensional monolayer, with helical edge states that are robust and that can be manipulated exploiting a unique strong interplay between spin-orbit coupling, crystal-symmetry breaking, and dielectric response.

Moiré quantum chemistry: Charge transfer in transition metal dichalcogenide superlattices

Transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) bilayers have recently emerged as a robust and tunable moire system for studying and designing correlated electron physics. In this work, by combining

Large-scale mapping of moir\'e superlattices by Raman imaging of interlayer breathing mode and moir\'e phonons

Moiré superlattices can induce correlated-electronic phases in twisted van-der-Waals materials – strongly correlated quantum phenomena emerge, such as superconductivity and the Mottinsulating state.

It is demonstrated that twisted bilayer boron nitride (TBBN) is an even more exciting novel system that turns out to be an excellent platform to realize new correlated phases and phenomena and to study novel exciton condensate and spatial confinement physics, and correlations in two dimensions.

Obstruction and Interference in Low-Energy Models for Twisted Bilayer Graphene.

This work finds that a careful analysis of the electron density produced by backscattering of Bloch waves from an impurity potential localized on the moiré superlattice scale can be used to tightly constrain the analytic form of the appropriate low-energy theory.
