The online magazine Physics World has awarded the research team of Pablo Jarillo-Herrero, a researcher of the MIT, for making a discovery that led to the development of “twistronics”. This promising technique can adjust the electronic properties of graphene by rotation of its adjacent layers. Their first achievement was the creation of magic-angle graphene, which behaves like a high temperature semiconductor.

[Optoelectronic] – Creating custom light using 2D materials 21 février 2020

Finding new semi-conductor materials that emit light is essential for developing a wide range of electronic devices. But making artificial structures that emit light tailored to our specific needs is an even more attractive proposition. However, light emission in a semi-conductor only occurs when certain conditions are met.
