Quasicrystalline 30{degrees} twisted bilayer graphene as an incommensurate superlattice with strong interlayer coupling [Applied Physical Sciences]

The interlayer coupling can be used to engineer the electronic structure of van der Waals heterostructures (superlattices) to obtain properties that are not possible in a single material. So far research in heterostructures has been focused on commensurate superlattices with a long-ranged Moiré period. Incommensurate heterostructures with rotational symmetry but…
