Detection of magnetic focusing peaks allows probing of minibands in the energy spectrum of twisted bilayer graphene. Magnetic fields force ballistic electrons injected from a narrow contact to move along skipping orbits and form caustics. This leads to pronounced resistance peaks at nearby voltage probes as electrons are effectively focused inside them, a phenomenon known as magnetic focusing. This can be used not only for the demonstration of ballistic transport but also to study the… 

Valley splitter and transverse valley focusing in twisted bilayer graphene

We study transport in twisted bilayer graphene and show that electrostatic barriers can act as valley splitters, where electrons from the $K$ ($K'$) valley are transmitted only to e.g.\ the top

This study demonstrates twisted bilayer graphene to be a distinctively tunable platform for exploring correlated states by inducing superconductivity at a twist angle larger than 1.1°—in which correlated phases are otherwise absent—by varying the interlayer spacing with hydrostatic pressure.
