Unveiling the Magic: Exploring the Fascinating World of Magic Angle Graphene

Antonio Benitez (Postdoctoral Researcher - MIT)
Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure, has long fascinated scientists due to its unique properties. In our lab, we've revitalized graphene's realm, revealing extraordinary properties previously unseen. Join me as I explore the mysteries behind this phenomenon, where the precise twist of two graphene layers at 1.1 degrees, known as "the magic angle," sparks unprecedented electronic behaviors. Discover how this seemingly simple twist transforms graphene into a playground for exotic quantum phenomena, including superconductivity and the Mott insulator state.
