Competing zero-field Chern insulators in Superconducting Twisted Bilayer Graphene
The discovery of magic angle twisted bilayer graphene (MATBG) has unveiled a rich variety of superconducting, magnetic and topologically nontrivial phases. The existence of all these phases in oneExpand

Local compressibility measurements of correlated states in suspended bilayer graphene.
Local compressibility measurements of a suspended graphene bilayer are reported, indicating the existence of a zero-field ordered state and consistent with the formation of either an anomalous quantum Hall state or a nematic phase with broken rotational symmetry. Expand
