קולוקוויום בפיזיקה: 2D With A Twist
Dr. Rafi Bistritzer, Applied Materials
Dr. Rafi Bistritzer is a recipient of this year’s Wolf prize
2D systems have been in the focus of condensed matter physics for decades. Recently it was shown that a twist between a pair of 2D graphene sheets at a particular ‘magic angle’ transfers the bilayer system to the strongly interacting regime. In this talk I will explain the ‘magic angle’ theory and review recent experimental results that demonstrate why twisted 2D systems provide an excellent playground for studying some of the most fundamental open questions in condensed matter physics.
