Physics 119
Speaker: Slava Rotkin (Pennsylvania State University)
Novel 2D materials (2DMs), a class of electronic single/few-layer lattices, demonstrate a number of unique physical effects. Among those, their electronic properties were shown to depend on the stacking order of the individual layers, specifically on their angular registry aka twist. Intuitively... Read More »

Physics 298
Speaker: Alexey Gorshkov (University of Maryland)
Starting with a system described by a conformal field theory (e.g. a critical spin chain or free fermions), one can find interesting violations to the typical logarithmic behavior of the bipartite entanglement entropy by introducing an inhomogeneous kinetic term in the Hamiltonian. Two examples of... Read More »
