Abstract: K56.00014 : Structural relaxation of twisted bilayer graphene approaching the magic angle by first-principles studies*
5:36 PM–5:48 PM
(Georgia Institute of Technology)
In this presentation, DFT results for both the in-plane and out-of-plane relaxation of twisted bilayer graphene at small twisting angles will be presented and their role in determining the electronic structure will be discussed. Due to the aforementioned large system sizes, a linear scaling method with localized basis sets has been used to extend the picture towards the magic angle after careful validation.
