Graphene-based spinmechatronic valve

The interlayer twist between van der Waals graphene crystals led to the discovery of superconducting and insulating states near the magic angle. In this work, we exploit this mechanical degree of

Magneto-electronic properties of twisted bilayer graphene system

The generalized tight-binding model is developed to investigate the magneto-electronic properties in twisted bilayer graphene system. All the interlayer and intralayer atomic interactions are

Facile synthesis of twisted graphene solution from graphite-KCl

A simple technique is demonstrated to produce twisted bi- and tri-layer graphene by mild sonication of exfoliated graphite on a large scale. No oxidation or reduction of graphite is involved in this

Electrical band flattening, valley flux, and superconductivity in twisted trilayer graphene

Twisted graphene multilayers have demonstrated to yield a versatile playground to engineer controllable electronic states. Here, by combining first-principles calculations and low-energy models, we

Tunable van Hove Singularities and Correlated States in Twisted Trilayer Graphene

Understanding and tuning correlated states is of great interest and significance to modern condensed matter physics. The recent discovery of unconventional superconductivity and Mott-like insulating

Transfer of a Single Layer Graphene

Graphene is a truly outstanding 2D material that holds the promise of revolutionizing the world with its many applications. All this expectation requires a high-quality graphene synthetized and

Local atomic stacking and symmetry in twisted graphene trilayers

Moir\'e superlattices formed from twisting trilayers of graphene are an ideal model for studying electronic correlation, and offer several advantages over bilayer analogues, including more robust and

Scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy of twisted trilayer graphene

Twist, as a simple and unique degree of freedom, could lead to enormous novel quantum phenomena in bilayer graphene. A small rotation angle introduces low-energy van Hove singularities (VHSs)


We have checked that the inclusion of interlayer couplings between the two outer layers only modifies the numerical values of the band energies
