Single crystal surfaces with periodic overlayers, such as graphene on hexagonal metal substrates, are found to exhibit, apart from their intrinsic periodicity, additional long-range order expressed by approximate surface lattices with large lattice constants. This phenomenon can be described as geometrically analogous to lateral interference effects resulting in periodic moiré patterns which are characterized by two-dimensional moiré lattices. Here we discuss in detail the mathematical… CONTINUE READING
