The electronic thickness of graphene is measured by two capacitively coupled, atomically close graphene layers. When two dimensional crystals are atomically close, their finite thickness becomes relevant. Using transport measurements, we investigate the electrostatics of two graphene layers, twisted by θ = 22° such that the layers are decoupled by the huge momentum mismatch between the K and K′ points of the two layers. We observe a splitting of the zero-density lines of the two layers with… 

Quantum capacitive coupling between large-angle twisted graphene layers

Large-angle twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) is known to be electronically decoupled due to the spatial separation of the Dirac cones corresponding to individual graphene layers in the reciprocal

Parallel transport and layer-resolved thermodynamic measurements in twisted bilayer graphene

We employ dual-gated 30°-twisted bilayer graphene to demonstrate simultaneous ultra-high mobility and conductivity (up to 40 mS at room temperature), unattainable in a single-layer of graphene. We

Gap Opening in Twisted Double Bilayer Graphene by Crystal fields.

It is shown both by means of first principles calculations and low energy models that crystal fields open a band gap in the groundstate, suggesting that such contributions must be taken into account in other regimes to faithfully predict the electronic properties of twisted graphene multilayers.

Correlated electron-hole state in twisted double-bilayer graphene

The measurements reveal the formation of ordered states with reconstructed Fermi surfaces, consistent with a density-wave state, enabling studies of correlated electron-hole states and their interplay with superconductivity.

Out-of-Plane Dielectric Susceptibility of Graphene in Twistronic and Bernal Bilayers

It is shown that monolayers in tBLG are described well by polarizability αexp = 10.8 Å3 and effective out-of-plane dielectric susceptibility ϵz = 2.5, including their on-layer electron density distribution at zero magnetic field and the interlayer Landau level pinning at quantizing magnetic fields.

Resonant tunnelling between the chiral Landau states of twisted graphene lattices

A class of multilayered functional materials has recently emerged in which the component atomic layers are held together by weak van der Waals forces that preserve the structural integrity and

Resistivity of Rotated Graphite-Graphene Contacts.

Single-crystal graphite is employed for the bulk contact to graphene instead of conventional metals and the contact resistivity exhibits a 60° periodicity corresponding to crystal symmetry with additional sharp decreases around 22° and 39°, which are among the commensurate angles of twisted bilayer graphene.

Cross-sectional imaging of individual layers and buried interfaces of graphene-based heterostructures and superlattices.

This work proves the concept of heterostructures assembled with atomic layer precision and provides their first TEM images, finding that the trapped hydrocarbons segregate into isolated pockets, leaving the interfaces atomically clean.

Strong Coulomb drag and broken symmetry in double-layer graphene

C oulomb drag is a frictional coupling between electric currents flowing in spatially separated conducting layers. It is caused by interlayer electron‐electron interactions. Previously, only the

The experimental observation of Fabry-Pérot interference in the conductance of a gate-defined cavity in a dual-gated bilayer graphene device is reported and the gap is shown to destroy the perfect reflection for electrons traversing the barrier with normal incidence (anti-Klein tunneling).
