B51.00001. Ground State of Magic Angle Twisted Bilayer Graphene

Presented by: Shang Liu


In magic angle twisted bilayer graphene (MATBG), interactions dominate over the kinetic energy, resulting in correlated insulating states and superconductivity whose origin remains a mystery. Here, using a combination of analytical arguments and numerical calculations we identify a family of candidate insulating ground states at charge neutrality and discuss how external perturbations such as the influence of the substrate or strain can alter the phase diagram.
