Landau-level excitons
Alexey Kuzmenko

In sufficiently high magnetic fields, continuous electron bands are transformed into quantized Landau levels (LLs). Although the huge density and degeneracy of states inside the LLs seems at first glance to favor the interactions effects, the famous Kohn theorem [1]...

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.
