Engineers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have shown how to create stacks of atomically thin crystal layers that are misaligned by 30 degrees from each other. That 30-degree rotation of each atomically thin layer relative to the one below it could lead to new electronic or optical properties, greater speed, and more functionality in less space.
