Here we propose BC 3 , a graphene derivative that has been synthesized, as a platform to realize exotic quantum phases by introducing a moir´e pattern with mismatched stacking. In twisted bilayer BC 3 , it is shown that a crossover from two-dimensional to quasi one-dimensional band structure takes place with the twist angle as a control parameter. This is a typical manifestation of the guiding principle in van der Waals stacked systems: the quantum interference between Bloch wave functions in…

One-dimensional flat bands in twisted bilayer germanium selenide

TLDR
It is demonstrated by combining large scale ab initio simulations with numerically exact strong correlation approaches that an effective one-dimensional system emerges upon stacking two twisted sheets of GeSe, in marked contrast to all moiré systems studied so far.

Flat band in twisted bilayer Bravais lattices

Band engineering in twisted bilayers of the five generic two-dimensional Bravais networks is demonstrated. We first derive symmetry-based constraints on the interlayer coupling, which helps us to

Correlated insulator behaviour at half-filling in magic-angle graphene superlattices

TLDR
It is shown experimentally that when this angle is close to the ‘magic’ angle the electronic band structure near zero Fermi energy becomes flat, owing to strong interlayer coupling, and these flat bands exhibit insulating states at half-filling, which are not expected in the absence of correlations between electrons.

Cascade of electronic transitions in magic-angle twisted bilayer graphene

TLDR
A cascade of transitions is reported that characterizes the correlated high-temperature parent phase 11, 12 from which various insulating and superconducting ground-state phases emerge at low temperatures in magic-angle twisted bilayer graphene.

Emergent ferromagnetism near three-quarters filling in twisted bilayer graphene

TLDR
Evidence is presented that near three-quarters of the filling of the conduction miniband, these enhanced interactions drive the twisted bilayer graphene into a ferromagnetic state, and measurements suggest that the system may be an incipient Chern insulator.

Cascade of phase transitions and Dirac revivals in magic-angle graphene

TLDR
The state that is reported here, with its strongly broken electronic flavour symmetry and revived Dirac-like electronic character, is important in the physics of magic-angle graphene, forming the parent state out of which the more fragile superconducting and correlated insulating ground states emerge.

Effective continuum model of twisted bilayer GeSe and origin of the emerging one-dimensional mode

The electric structure of twisted bilayer GeSe, which shows a rectangular moiré pattern, is analyzed using a k · p type effective continuum model. The effective model is constructed on the basis of

Superconductors, orbital magnets and correlated states in magic-angle bilayer graphene

TLDR
This study shows that broken-symmetry states, interaction-driven insulators, orbital magnets, states with non-zero Chern numbers and superconducting domes occur frequently across a wide range of moiré flat band fillings, including close to charge neutrality.

Non-Abelian Dirac node braiding and near-degeneracy of correlated phases at odd integer filling in magic-angle twisted bilayer graphene

We use the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG) to study the correlated electron states favored by the Coulomb interaction projected onto the narrow bands of twisted bilayer graphene within a

Valley filter and valley valve in graphene

The potential of graphene for carbon electronics rests on the possibilities offered by its unusual band structure to create devices that have no analogue in silicon-based electronics1,2. Conduction
