The electronic, optical, and mechanical properties of bilayer and trilayer graphene vary with their structure, including the stacking order and relative twist, providing novel ways to realize useful characteristics not available to single layer graphene. However, developing controlled growth of bilayer and trilayer graphene requires efficient large-scale characterization of multilayer graphene structures. Here, we use dark-field transmission electron microscopy for rapid and accurate… Expand
Rotational disorder in twisted bilayer graphene.
TLDR
Interlayer interactions are resilient to strain and rotational disorder, a fact that gives promise to the prospect of designer 2D solid heterostructures created via transfer processes. Expand
Angle-resolved Raman imaging of interlayer rotations and interactions in twisted bilayer graphene.
TLDR
This work combines two direct imaging techniques, dark-field transmission electron microscopy (DF-TEM) and widefield Raman imaging, to establish a robust, one-to-one correlation between twist angle and Raman intensity in twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG). Expand

Strain solitons and topological defects in bilayer graphene
Bilayer graphene has been a subject of intense study in recent years. The interlayer registry between the layers can have dramatic effects on the electronic properties: for example, in the presenceExpand
Twist, slip, and circular dichroism in bilayer graphene
Stacking atomically thin two-dimensional materials with a rotational misalignment between their layers produces a van der Waals bilayer in which all mirror symmetries can be broken. A fundamentalExpand
Opportunities and Challenges in Twisted Bilayer Graphene: A Review
TLDR
The studies on twisted bilayer graphene have been exciting and challenging thus far, especially after superconductivity was reported in tBLG at the magic angle. Expand
Atomic and electronic reconstruction at the van der Waals interface in twisted bilayer graphene
TLDR
An investigation of the structural and transport properties of bilayer graphene as a function of the twist angle between the layers reveals atomic-scale reconstruction for twist angles smaller than a critical value. Expand

Stacking order dependent second harmonic generation and topological defects in h-BN bilayers.
TLDR
A strong correlation between the interlayer stacking structures and optical and topological properties in chemically grown h-BN bilayers is reported, measured mainly by using dark-field transmission electron microscopy (DF-TEM) and optical second harmonic generation (SHG) mapping. Expand

Electronic structure of graphene twist stacks
We investigate the electronic structure of graphene stacks having an ordered sequence of pairs of twisted layers—the graphene twist stack. We find that this remarkable system entails a fundamentalExpand
Grains and grain boundaries in single-layer graphene atomic patchwork quilts
TLDR
This work determines the location and identity of every atom at a grain boundary and finds that different grains stitch together predominantly through pentagon–heptagon pairs, and reveals an unexpectedly small and intricate patchwork of grains connected by tilt boundaries. Expand
Imaging stacking order in few-layer graphene.
TLDR
An accurate and efficient method to characterize stacking order in FLG using the distinctive features of the Raman 2D-mode is demonstrated and it is found that 15% of exfoliated graphene tri- and tetralayers is composed of micrometer-sized domains of rhombohedral stacking, rather than of usual Bernal stacking.

The realization of a one-dimensional topological defect in graphene, containing octagonal and pentagonal sp(2)-hybridized carbon rings embedded in a perfect graphene sheet is reported, which acts as a quasi-one-dimensional metallic wire. Expand
The structure of suspended graphene sheets
TLDR
These studies by transmission electron microscopy reveal that individual graphene sheets freely suspended on a microfabricated scaffold in vacuum or air are not perfectly flat: they exhibit intrinsic microscopic roughening such that the surface normal varies by several degrees and out-of-plane deformations reach 1 nm.

Graphene bilayer with a twist: electronic structure.
TLDR
A graphene bilayer with a relative small angle rotation between the layers is considered and it is found that the low energy dispersion is linear, as in a single layer, but the Fermi velocity can be significantly smaller than the single-layer value. Expand
Control and characterization of individual grains and grain boundaries in graphene grown by chemical vapour deposition.
TLDR
It is shown that grain boundaries give a significant Raman 'D' peak, impede electrical transport, and induce prominent weak localization indicative of intervalley scattering in graphene, opening a route towards scalable fabrication of single-crystal graphene devices without grain boundaries. Expand
