E. Cancès was co-awarded a Simons Foundation’s Target Grant on moiré materials

The physics of moiré materials has developed exponentially in the last few years, following in particular the experimental discovery by P. Jarillo-Herrero (MIT) et al. in 2018 of superconducting states in twisted bilayer graphene (TBG). The topic of Moiré materials gives rise to new research directions at the interface between physics and mathematics. The project funded by the Simons Foundation brings together an… Read more »
