TYC Journal Club: Moiré materials and flat bands: the case of twisted transition metal dichalcogenides bilayers

4 April 2022 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Join us on Monday 4 April at 11am on Zoom.

In this meeting, Valerio Vitale will discuss his work on:
Moiré materials and flat bands: the case of twisted transition metal dichalcogenides bilayers.

  • Intro to the physics of moiré materials and the field of twistronics
  • Flat bands and electron correlation 
  • Twisted transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) bilayers as a realisation of moiré materials
  • Challenges in modelling the atomic and electronic structure of moiré materials
  • Our multiscale approach: Classical force fields and ab initio tight-binding
  • Results
  • Conclusions

Hope to see you all there!
