‘Magic angle’ trilayer graphene found to act as rare “spin-triplet” superconductor

Researchers at MIT and Harvard University have previously found that graphene can have exotic properties when situated at a 'magic angle'. Now, a new study by some of the members of the same team shows that this material could...

Researchers create tunable superconductivity in magic-angle twisted trilayer graphene

When two sheets of graphene are stacked atop each other at just the right angle, the layered structure morphs into an unconventional superconductor, allowing electric currents to pass through without resistance or wasted energy. This “magic-angle” transformation in bilayer...

MIT team finds ‘twisted’ graphene getting weirder at ‘magical angle’

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have previously found a particularly strange pattern in the “twisted” graphene structure, and now they’ve studied it more closely and found that the more layers it has, the better it will...
