First van der Waals heterostructure


About one month after the transfer system arrived in cologne, all pieces were finally in place to build the first stack of 2D materials. A bilayer graphene flake encapsulated in hBN, together with a nicely aligned graphite backgate.
We're now ready to continously fabricate stacks and to explore different 2D materials such as TMDs.
