Strongly correlated phenomena in twisted bilayers of graphene and transition metal dichacogenides

Project description

Probing the dynamics of twisted bilayer materials

Combining 2D materials in a vertical stack offers a plethora of exciting opportunities. The relative orientation of the 2D layers ultimately determines the performance of the new hybrid material when integrated into functional devices. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the TWISTM project aims to unravel fundamental properties of bilayers of graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides arising from many-body interactions. The project will combine local probe techniques (scanning tunnelling microscopy and scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy) at the sub-nanometre scale with mesoscopic electron transport measurements to determine how the microscopic properties affect the macroscopic behaviour of vertically stacked heterostructures.
