Researchers examine twisted bilayer graphene’s intriguing interactions with light

In ‘magic angle’ graphene, especially near the angle of 1 degree, the electrons slow down dramatically, favoring interactions between the electrons. Such interactions give rise to a new type of superconductivity and insulating phases in twisted bilayer...
Graphene oxide foam helps filter toxins from drinking water

Graphene oxide foam helps filter toxins from drinking water

MIT-led research team uses graphene oxide foam in a device that can extract uranium and other heavy metals from tap water.Some kinds of water pollution, such as algal blooms and plastics that foul various bodies of water, are found in plain sight. However, other...

‘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 also be a...
Researchers create tunable superconductivity in magic-angle twisted trilayer graphene

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...
