Moiré patterns facilitate discovery of novel insulating phases

Materials that have excess electrons are typically conductors. However, moiré patterns — interference patterns that typically arise when one object with a repetitive pattern is placed over another with a similar pattern — can suppress electrical conductivity, a study led by physicists at the University of California, Riverside, has found. In the lab, the researchers...
