Opportunities and Challenges in Twisted Bilayer Graphene: A Review

Two-dimensional (2D) materials exhibit enhanced physical, chemical, electronic, and optical properties when compared to those of bulk materials. Graphene demands significant attention due to its superior physical and electronic characteristics among different types of 2D materials. The bilayer graphene is fabricated by the stacking of the two monolayers of graphene. The twisted bilayer graphene (tBLG) superlattice is formed when these layers are twisted at a small angle. The presence of disorders and interlayer interactions in tBLG enhances several characteristics, including the optical and electrical properties. The studies on twisted bilayer graphene have been exciting and challenging thus far, especially after superconductivity was reported in tBLG at the magic angle. This article reviews the current progress in the fabrication techniques of twisted bilayer graphene and its twisting angle-dependent properties. Find the article via this link.
