Low-lying entanglement spectrum provide the quintessential fingerprint to identify the highly entangled quantum matter with topological and conformal field-theoretical properties. However, when the


Realization of topological Mott insulator in a twisted bilayer graphene lattice model
A Mott-Hubbard perspective for the TBG system is provided, identifying a first-order quantum phase transition between the insulating stripe phase and the quantum anomalous Hall state with the Chern number of ±1.
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.
Kekulé valence bond order in an extended Hubbard model on the honeycomb lattice with possible applications to twisted bilayer graphene
Using large-scale quantum Monte Carlo simulations, we exactly solve a model of Fermions hopping on the honeycomb lattice with cluster charge interactions, which has been proposed as an effective
Symmetry-broken Chern insulators and Rashba-like Landau-level crossings in magic-angle bilayer graphene
Flat-bands in magic angle twisted bilayer graphene (MATBG) have recently emerged as a rich platform to explore strong correlations, superconductivity and mag-netism. However, the phases of MATBG in
Mechanism for Anomalous Hall Ferromagnetism in Twisted Bilayer Graphene.
A lowest Landau level model is used to understand the origin of the underlying symmetry-broken correlated state in twisted bilayer graphene, which exhibits a phase transition from a spin-valley polarized insulator to a partial or fully valley unpolarized metal as the bandwidth is increased relative to the interaction strength.
Correlated states in twisted double bilayer graphene
Electron–electron interactions play an important role in graphene and related systems and can induce exotic quantum states, especially in a stacked bilayer with a small twist angle 1 – 7 . For
Origin of Mott Insulating Behavior and Superconductivity in Twisted Bilayer Graphene
A remarkable recent experiment has observed Mott insulator and proximate superconductor phases in twisted bilayer graphene when electrons partly fill a nearly flat mini-band that arises a `magic'
Tunable correlated Chern insulator and ferromagnetism in a moiré superlattice
The discovery of a C  = 2 Chern insulator at zero magnetic field should open up opportunities for discovering correlated topological states, possibly with topological excitations, in nearly flat and topologically nontrivial moiré minibands.
Spontaneous fractional Chern insulators in transition metal dichalcogenide moiré superlattices
Moiré superlattice realized in two-dimensional heterostructures offers an exciting platform to access stronglycorrelated electronic states. In this work, we study transition metal dichalcogenides
Symmetry, Maximally Localized Wannier States, and a Low-Energy Model for Twisted Bilayer Graphene Narrow Bands
We build symmetry adapted maximally localized Wannier states, and construct the low energy tight binding model for the four narrow bands of the twisted bilayer graphene. We do so when the twist angle
