Your review will affect the following:
A widely used type of microscopy can reveal the structure of 2D ‘wonder materials’ in superb detail.Take two carbon sheets, each only one atom thick. Stack them, then rotate them so that their crystal structures are slightly misaligned. The resulting structure, called a ‘twisted bilayer’, can have surprising properties, such as superconductivity, making this and similar structures of great interest to physicists.To image a type of twisted bilayer called a superlattice, Abhay Pasupathy at Columbia University in New York City and his collaborators used a room-temperature technique that...
