Scientists at The University of Manchester have ‘re-discovered’ a material, which could make the construction of 2D van der Waals heterostructures easier to build.
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.
