Breaking down graphene degeneracy Bilayer graphene has two layers of hexagonally arranged carbon atoms stacked on top of each other in a staggered configuration. This spatial arrangement results in degenerate electronic states: distinct states that have the same energy. Interaction between electrons can cause the states to separate in energy, and so can external fields (see the Perspective by LeRoy and Yankowitz). Kou et al., Lee et al., and Maher et al. used three distinct experimental setups… 

Tunable fractional quantum Hall phases in bilayer graphene

Fractional QHE states in BLG that show phase transitions that can be tuned by a transverse electric field are reported, providing a model platform with which to study the role of symmetry-breaking in emergent states with topological order.

Tunable quantum Hall edge conduction in bilayer graphene through spin-orbit interaction

Bilayer graphene, in the presence of a one-sided spin-orbit interaction (SOI) induced by a suitably chosen substrate, is predicted to exhibit unconventional Quantum Hall states. The new states arise

Broken-Symmetry Quantum Hall States in Twisted Bilayer Graphene

This work investigates broken-symmetry quantum Hall (QH) states and their transitions due to the interplay of the relative strength of valley, spin and layer polarizations in twisted bilayer graphene and suggests that the QH states with broken valley and spin symmetries for individual layer become hybridized via interlayer tunnelling.

A trio of studies in this issue have elucidated the nature of these exotic broken-symmetry states in graphene, making it an even richer system for complex electronic states to emerge.

Fractional Quantum Hall States in Bilayer Graphene Probed by Transconductance Fluctuations.

The observed stability of both odd and even denominator fractional QH states is very sensitive to local transverse electric fields in bilayer graphene, and the particle-hole symmetric state at filling 1/2 is detected.

Composite fermions and broken symmetries in graphene.

In the first two Landau levels, the two-flux composite-fermion sequences of FQH states between each integer filling factor suggest a broken-valley symmetry, consistent with the observation of a gap at charge neutrality and zero field.

Landau quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene and its multilayers

When electrons are confined in a two-dimensional (2D) system, typical quantum–mechanical phenomena such as Landau quantization can be detected. Graphene systems, including the single atomic layer and

Transport measurements in dual-gated bilayer graphene suggest that BLG is a platform in which topological ground states with possible non-abelian excitations can be manipulated and controlled.

The underlying order of the various broken-symmetry states in bilayer graphene suspended between top and bottom gate electrodes was investigated and the order parameter was deduced by controllably breaking the spin and sublattice symmetries.

Fractional quantum Hall phase transitions and four-flux states in graphene.

Local electronic compressibility measurements of ultraclean suspended graphene reveal a multitude of fractional quantum Hall states surrounding filling factors ν=-1/2 and -1/4, and several of these states exhibit phase transitions that indicate abrupt changes in the underlying order.

Unconventional Sequence of Fractional Quantum Hall States in Suspended Graphene

Graphene provides a rich platform to study many-body effects, owing to its massless chiral charge carriers and the fourfold degeneracy arising from their spin and valley degrees of freedom, and an unusual pattern of incompressible fractional quantum Hall states that follows the standard composite fermion sequence between filling factors but involves only even-numerator fractions between ν = 1 and 2.
