The crystal structure of a material creates a periodic potential that electrons move through giving rise to the electronic band structure of the material. When two-dimensional materials are stacked, the twist angle between the layers becomes an additional degree freedom for the resulting heterostructure. As this angle changes, the electronic band structure is modified leading to the possibility of flat bands with localized states and enhanced electronic correlations. In transition metal…
