The Berry curvature - an important property of quantum materials - can be imaged with chiral light. An international research team has predicted the outcomes of photoelectron spectroscopy experiments and showed that the resulting images reveal information about the microscopic structure of electronic wavefunctions inside atomically thin, two-dimensional materials.  more

Researchers reveal that the possibilities created by stacking two sheets of atomically thin material atop each other at a twist are even greater than expected. Their work provides new insights into the question how a correlated system crosses over from two dimensions to one. more

Researchers from the MPSD and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) discover a significant new fundamental kind of quantum electronic oscillations, or plasmons, in atomically thin materials. more

Researchers from Hamburg and Bombay expose 2D monolayer of defective hexagonal boron nitride to an intense light flash to explore how defects influence the motion of electrons in solids during HHG. more

An international team of scientists has unraveled the light-induced electron-localization dynamics in transition metals on the attosecond timescale. The team investigated for the first time the many-body electron dynamics in transition metals before thermalization sets in. more

Scientists from the United States, Germany and Japan explain how the electronic structure in twisted bilayer graphene (TBLG) influences the emergence of the insulating state in these systems, which is the precursor to superconductivity in high-Tc materials. more

Researchers uncover how quantum fluctuations can be used to restore the fundamental symmetry of the electronic motions in crystals affected by magnetic fields. more
