Understanding the mechanism of high-transition-temperature (high-T c) superconductivity is a central problem in condensed matter physics. It is often speculated that high-T c superconductivity arises in a doped Mott insulator1 as described by the Hubbard model2–4. An exact solution of the Hubbard model, however, is extremely challenging owing to the strong electron–electron correlation in Mott insulators. Therefore, it is highly desirable to study a tunable Hubbard system, in which systematic… Expand
Tunable strongly coupled superconductivity in magic-angle twisted trilayer graphene.
TLDR
It is found that the superconducting phase is suppressed and bounded at the Van Hove singularities that partially surround the broken-symmetry phase, which is difficult to reconcile with weak-coupling Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory. Expand
Superconductivity in rhombohedral trilayer graphene.
TLDR
The observation of superconductivity-manifesting as low- or vanishing resistivity at sub-kelvin temperatures-in crystalline rhombohedral trilayer graphene5,6, a structurally metastable carbon allotrope provides a model system to test competing theoretical models ofsuperconductivity without the complication of modeling disorder, while enabling new classes of field-effect controlled electronic devices based on correlated electron phenomena and ballistic electron transport.

Evidence for unconventional superconductivity in twisted bilayer graphene.
TLDR
The tunnelling gap persists even when superconductivity is suppressed, indicating its emergence from a pseudogap phase, and other observations reported here provide a preponderance of evidence for a non-BCS mechanism forsuperconductivity in MATBG. Expand
Tunable correlated Chern insulator and ferromagnetism in a moiré superlattice
TLDR
The discovery of a C  = 2 Chern insulator at zero magnetic field should open up opportunities for discovering correlated topological states, possibly with topological excitations, in nearly flat and topologically nontrivial moiré minibands. Expand
Classifying superconductivity in Moiré graphene superlattices
TLDR
Extracted superconducting parameters show that only s -wave and a specific kind of p -wave symmetries are likely to be dominant in bilayer graphene Moiré superlattices, and more experimental data is required to distinguish between the s - and remaining p - waves as well as the suspected two-band superconductivity in these 2D superlATTices.

TLDR
A correlation between strong electron-phonon coupling and experimental observations of robust superconductivity is clearly shown and the Bernal-stacked layers in TDBG and TMBG induce sublattice polarization in the flat-band states, suppressing intersublattices electron- phonon matrix elements.
