Moire-Twistronics workshop

9 August @ 1:30 pm 13 August @ 4:30 pm

The online Moiré-Twistronics workshop is dedicated to recent developments in theory and experiments on twisted bilayer materials. The workshop will be run jointly by the UK’s National Graphene Institute (Manchester), the Thomas Young Centre for Theory and Simulation of Materials (London), and the Sir Henry Royce Institute.

Workshop attendance is free of charge.
