Event Description

Eva Andrei, PhD , Rutgers University,
Distinguished Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy presents

“Moire Magic”
Once in a while, a discovery comes along that opens up uncharted paths of inquiry. The discovery of atomically thin crystals, starting with graphene and followed up by dozens in the van der Waals family of compounds, has changed the way we think about materials. This new class of designer materials is making it possible to tune and control electronic properties without changing chemical composition, through alternative means such as superposing different layers, misaligning them, inducing strain, etc.  In this talk I will describe highlights from this rapidly evolving field, also known as moire materials, from its serendipitous inception, to the discovery of correlated electron phases in twisted bilayers.
Host: Jörn Venderbos, assistant professor of Physics
Pre-Colloquium Coffee Social @ 3:15 p.m.
Everyone in the Physics Department community is invited to attend the coffee social prior to the lecture.
