A new understanding of the physics of conductive materials has been uncovered by scientists observing the unusual movement of electrons in graphene.
Artistic impression of Hofstadter's butterfly effect in graphene/BN heterostructures exposed to magnetic field. In such heterostructures. Moire pattern arises due to mismatch and rotation between atomic lattices of graphene and hexagonal boron nitride.
