A mesoscopic model of an adsorbate clusters self-assembly by diffusion on a graphene Moiré
A continuum mesoscopic model of a Moiré-regulated self-assembly of metal clusters on graphene is developed. Computations for Pt, Ni and Pb show the clusters assembly at the Moiré cells centers,
A mesoscopic model of nanoclusters self-assembly on a graphene Moiré
A continuum, post-deposition mesoscopic model of a Moiré-regulated self-assembly of metal nanoclusters on a twisted bilayer graphene is presented. Quasi-two-dimensional nanocluster-like steady states
Surprisingly good thermoelectric performance of a black phosphorus/blue phosphorus van der Waals heterostructure.
Thermoelectric properties of a black phosphorus/blue phosphorus van der Waals heterostructure are investigated by using first-principles calculations and Boltzmann transport theory for both electrons
Recent Advances in Twisted Structures of Flatland Materials and Crafting Moiré Superlattices
The past decade has witnessed the occurrence of novel 2D moiré patterns in nanoflatland materials. These visually beautiful moiré superlattices have become a playground on which exotic quantum
Effects of doping and biaxial strain on the electronic properties of GaN/graphene/WS2 trilayer vdW heterostructure
Based on the calculation using first-principles, we discussed adjustment for electronic properties of the GaN/graphene/WS2 trilayer vdW heterostructure by doping and biaxial strain. Mg or Se doping
Tuning the electronic properties of bilayer black phosphorene with the twist angle
Two-dimensional (2D) twisted bilayer materials have displayed rich new physics, depending on the interlayer interaction mediated by the twist angle. Here, we performed systematic first-principles
Review of 2D group VA material-based heterostructures
The isolation of black phosphorus (BP) and extraordinary performance of the BP field-effect transistor have led to BP offering remarkable properties in the two-dimensional (2D) family. Along with BP,
Moiré patterns: a simple analytical model
By considering a straightforward geometrical construction in reciprocal space we derive simple analytical equations that describe the geometry (period and angle) of the moiré patterns (MPs) formed by

Single atomic layer allotrope of bismuth with rectangular symmetry
We report the observation of a new allotrope of two dimensional bismuth. Our Scanning Tun-nelling Microscopy experiments show that the structure is clearly different than the previously synthesized
Topological phase stability and transformation of bismuthene
Two-dimensional topological materials, in the form of ultrathin films grown on substrates, are outstanding candidates for spintronic applications. Their electronic structures including the
Anomalous superperiodicity in scanning tunneling microscope images of graphite
An anomalously large periodicity has been observed in scanning tunneling microscope images of a (00.1) graphite sample. The unusual contrast has hexagonal symmetry, a periodicity of 7.7±0.2 nm and is
Origin of the moiré pattern in thin Bi films deposited on HOPG
Thin Bi(110) films deposited on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) exhibit a pronounced moiré pattern; here the origin of the moiré pattern is investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy

An effective single-band Hamiltonian representing a crystal electron in a uniform magnetic field is constructed from the tight-binding form of a Bloch band by replacing
Scanning tunneling spectroscopy studies of angle-dependent van Hove singularities on twisted graphite surface layer
Slightly misoriented surface graphene layer on highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) can result in Moire patterns (MP). Two van Hove singularity (VHS) peaks in the density of states are observed
