Understanding and tuning correlated states is of great interest and significance to modern condensed matter physics. The recent discovery of unconventional superconductivity and Mott-like insulating states in magic-angle twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) presents a unique platform to study correlation phenomena, in which the Coulomb energy dominates over the quenched kinetic energy as a result of hybridized flat bands. Extending this approach to the case of twisted multilayer graphene would allow…

Lattice relaxation, mirror symmetry and magnetic field effects on ultraflat bands in twisted trilayer graphene

Twisted graphene multilayers exhibit strongly correlated insulating states and superconductivity due to the presence of ultraflat bands near the charge neutral point. In this paper, the response of

Twistronics in graphene-based van der Waals structures

The electronic properties of van der Waals (vdW) structures can be substantially modified by the moire superlattice potential, which strongly depends on the twist angle among the compounds. In

Tunable strongly coupled superconductivity in magic-angle twisted trilayer graphene.

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.

Evidence of Orbital Ferromagnetism in Twisted Bilayer Graphene Aligned to Hexagonal Boron Nitride.

Determination of interatomic coupling between two-dimensional crystals using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy
