We investigate the electronic structure of alternating-twist triple Bernal-stacked bilayer graphene (t3BG) as a function of interlayer coupling ω , twist angle θ , interlayer potential difference ∆, and top-bottom bilayers sliding vector τ for three possible configurations AB/AB/AB, AB/BA/AB, and AB/AB/BA. The parabolic low-energy band dispersions in a Bernal-stacked bilayer and gap-opening through a finite interlayer potential difference ∆ allows the flattening of bands in t3BG down to ∼ 20 meV for… 


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

Understanding and tuning correlated states is of great interest and importance to modern condensed-matter physics. The recent discovery of unconventional superconductivity and Mott-like insulating
Tuning superconductivity in twisted bilayer graphene
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.
Theory of correlated insulating behaviour and spin-triplet superconductivity in twisted double bilayer graphene
A twisted double bilayer graphene is studied, where ferromagnetic insulator and spin triplet superconducting phases can be stabilized and a novel orbital effect arising from in-plane fields plays an important role in interpreting experiments.

We investigate the bandwidth compression due to out of plane pressure of the moiré flatbands near charge neutrality in twisted bilayer graphene for a continuous range of small rotation angles of up
Lattice relaxation, mirror symmetry and magnetic field effects on ultraflat bands in twisted trilayer graphene
Twisted graphene multilayers have been demonstrated to host strongly correlated insulating states and superconductivity due to the presence of ultraflat bands near the charge neutral point. In this
