The following drawings present a graphene layer (blue) stacked with an hexagonal boron nitride (magenta) layer (hBN, sometimes referred to as white graphene). The stacking for aligned sheets presents a Moiré pattern, with a superlattice covering several nanometers.
Here the superlattice structure is drawn in black:
The following image represents different transport regime of quasiparticle in graphene and graphene superlattices:
The following picture adds a doping vs magnetic field conductance map: The magnetic field is varied along the vertical axis. Horizontal Yellow streaks show propagation of Brown-Zak fermions, propagating along straight trajectories with high mobility (low resistance), whereas slanted indigo lines show the cyclotron motion around Brown-Zak fermions. The slope of these lines enabled us to get the degeneracy (and find an additional quantum number) of these new quasiparticles.
And with a magnetic field axis:
Here, only the doping vs magnetic field map is shown.
