Short vs. long range exchange interactions in twisted bilayer graphene

We discuss the effect of long-range interactions within the self-consistent Hartree-Fock (HF) approximation in comparison to short-range atomic Hubbard interactions on the band structure of twisted

Superconductivity and correlated phases in non-twisted bilayer and trilayer graphene

Twisted bilayer graphene has a rich phase diagram, including superconductivity. Recently, an unexpected discovery has been the observation of superconductivity in non-twisted graphene bilayers and

Interference effects in polarization-controlled Rayleigh scattering in twisted bilayer graphene

We calculate the \tco{polarization}-controlled Rayleigh scattering response of twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) based on the continuum electronic band model developed by Bistritzer and MacDonald while

Role of correlated hopping in the many-body physics of flat-band systems: Nagaoka ferromagnetism

In narrow-band systems, correlated contribution to effective hopping becomes important, and one needs to carefully consider three types of hopping processes: between doubly- and singly-occupied sites,

Localization of dirac electrons in rotated graphene bilayers.

Ab initio and tight-binding approaches are combined and show that the wave function of Dirac electrons can be localized in rotated graphene bilayers due to the Moire pattern.

Band symmetries and singularities in twisted multilayer graphene

The electronic spectra of rotationally faulted graphene bilayers are calculated using a continuum formulation for small fault angles that identifies two distinct electronic states of the coupled

Importance of long-ranged electron-electron interactions for the magnetic phase diagram of twisted bilayer graphene

Electron-electron interactions are intrinsically long-ranged, but many models of strongly interacting electrons only take short-ranged interactions into account. Here, we present results of atomistic

Electrostatic effects, band distortions, and superconductivity in twisted graphene bilayers

It is shown that the modulation of the charge density significantly modifies the electronic structure, which can make an important contribution to superconductivity through electron-assisted hopping.

Commensuration and interlayer coherence in twisted bilayer graphene

The low energy electronic spectra of rotationally faulted graphene bilayers are studied using a long wavelength theory applicable to general commensurate fault angles. Lattice commensuration requires

Flat bands in slightly twisted bilayer graphene: Tight-binding calculations

The presence of flat bands near Fermi level has been proposed as an explanation for high transition temperature superconductors. The bands of graphite are extremely sensitive to topological defects

Interactions in the 8-orbital model for twisted bilayer graphene

We calculate the interactions between the Wannier functions of the 8-orbital model for twisted bilayer graphene (TBG). In this model, two orbitals per valley centered at the AA regions, the AA-p

Electrically Controllable Magnetism in Twisted Bilayer Graphene.

This work shows that interaction effects may induce either an antiferromagnetic or a ferromagnetic polarization of AA regions under bias, depending on the electrical bias between layers, which could turn twisted bilayer graphene into an ideal system to study frustrated magnetism in two dimensions.

Charge smoothening and band flattening due to Hartree corrections in twisted bilayer graphene

Doping twisted bilayer graphene away from charge neutrality leads to an enormous buildup of charge inhomogeneities within each Moire unit cell. Here we show, using unbiased real-space self-consistent

Charge-transfer insulation in twisted bilayer graphene

We studied the real space structure of states in twisted bilayer graphene at the `magic angle' $\theta = 1.08^\circ$. The flat bands close to charge neutrality are composed of a mix of `ring' and
