Weak-field Hall Resistivity and Spin/Valley Flavor Symmetry Breaking in MAtBG
Published 2020-10-15Version 1
Near a magic twist angle, the lowest energy conduction and valence bands of bilayer graphene moir\'e superlattices become extremely narrow. The band dispersion that remains is sensitive to the moir\'e's strain pattern, nonlocal tunneling between layers, and filling-factor dependent Hartree and exchange band renormalizations. In this article we analyze the influence of these band-structure details on the pattern of flavor-symmetry-breaking observed in this narrow band system, and on the associated pattern of Fermi surface reconstructions revealed by weak-field-Hall and Schubnikov-de Haas magneto-transport measurements.
