May 31, 2019 - Professor Harley Johnson has discovered for a small flake of crystalline material that is weakly bonded to a crystalline substrate, it is possible to induce rotation of the flake by applying strain to the substrate. This may make it possible to achieve the particular relative rotation between flake and substrate required for the recently discovered 'magic' angle effect in bilayer graphene, at which unconventional superconductivity can be found.
