Correlated phases in the vicinity of tunable van Hove singularities in Bernal bilayer graphene
Anna Seiler (ETH)

The bandstructure of naturally occurring Bernal bilayer graphene exhibits four linearly dispersed Dirac cones [1] but changes drastically when large electric displacement fields are applied across the two layers. Here, tunable van Hove singularities lead to the...

What is Flat Club?

The Flat Club is an interactive biweekly meeting on the broad topic of two-dimensional materials, interfaces and techniques. Most of the participants are working at the Department of Quantum Matter Physics or Theoretical Physics from the University of Geneva.

The aim of Flat Club is to stimulate discussion amongst the participants, to clearly formulate the relevant and inspiring questions of the field of 2d quantum matter, and to put new results in perspective. 

The range of topics include materials like twisted graphene and TMD structures, 2d magnetic materials and topological insulators, and LAO/STO interfaces. We discuss excitonic and electronic effects, including superconductivity. Techniques like STM, ARPES, SNOM, and transport are discussed.
