The rapidly developing science and technology of graphene and atomically-thin materials has taken another step forward with new research from The University of Manchester.
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.
