Graphene: Plasmons in moiré superlattices

A new article has been published on Nature Materials today: Graphene: Plasmons in moiré superlattices

The propagation of plasmons in graphene–hexagonal boron nitride moiré patterns is experimentally studied for the first time via infrared scattering near-field optical spectroscopy.
