Twisted layers graphene has shown to offer amazing electronic properties at
the magic angle, with strong correlations physics, superconductivity and Mott
Insulator transitions. These quantum properties rely on the particular
localization effects at the first magic angle (~1° for bilayers twisted
graphen). An important open question remains: what are the properties and new
physics emerging at the higher order magic angles? One way to reach them is by
application of high pressure, by changing the interlayer coupling.
The main objective of this PhD project is to reach such magic angles using
high pressure in diamond anvils cell. The PhD student will perform Raman
spectroscopy and electron transport measurements in diamond anvils cells,
using cryogenic systems. He/She will work at Néel Institute in collaboration
with two teams, one expert in 2D materials for fabrication and their
electronic and vibrational properties, the other expert in high pressure and
strong correlations physics. Superconductivity will be checked in particular,
and the role of phonons and strong correlations on this unconventional
superconductivity will be investigated.
We are looking for motivated candidates for this PhD position at the Néel
Institute in France to apply to the Marie-Curie CoFUND call (Cf.

deadline is the 7th of October. We then encourage you to contact us before the
end of the September to build the full project together.
