Manipulating the Flow of Light in Extreme Ways Using “Magic Angle” Twistronics

Posted by in categories: computing, nanotechnology

‘Twisted’ layers of 2D materials produce photonic topological transition at ‘magic’ rotation angles.

Monash researchers are part of an international collaboration applying ‘twistronics’ concepts (the science of layering and twisting 2D materials to control their electrical properties) to manipulate the flow of light in extreme ways.

The findings, published today in the journal Nature, hold the promise for leapfrog advances in a variety of light-driven technologies, including nano-imaging devices; high-speed, low-energy optical computers; and biosensors.
