The Magic of Moiré Quantum Matter

Lecture Abstract:
The understanding of strongly-correlated
quantum matter has challenged physicists for decades. The discovery
three years ago of correlated phases and superconductivity in magic
angle twisted bilayer graphene led to the emergence of a new materials
platform to investigate strongly correlated physics, namely moiré
quantum matter. These systems exhibit a plethora of quantum phases, such
as correlated insulators, superconductivity, magnetism, Chern
insulators, and more. In this talk, Professor Jarillo-Herrero will
review some of the recent advances in the field, focusing on the newest
generation of moiré quantum systems, where correlated physics,
superconductivity, and other fascinating phases can be studied with
unprecedented tunability. He will end the talk with an outlook of some
exciting directions in this emerging field.

Brief Biosketch:
Professor Pablo Jarillo-Herrero from MIT
studies novel condensed-matter systems and is especially well-known for
his pioneering work with twisted bilayer graphene.

He has received the 2020 Wolf Prize in Physics and the 2020 Buckley Prize in Condensed Matter Physics, among many other honors.
