New physics in flat Moire bands

Flat bands in Moire superlattices are emerging as a fascinating new playground for correlated electron physics. I will present the results of several studies inspired by these developments. First, I will address the question of whether superconductivity is possible even in the limit of a perfectly flat band. Then, I will discuss transport properties of a spin-polarized superconductor in the limit of zero spin-orbit coupling, where the topological structure of the order parameter space allows for a new dissipation mechanism not known from conventional superconductors. If time allows, I will also discuss the interpretation of new measurements of the electronic compressibility in twisted bilayer graphene, indicating a cascade of symmetry-breaking transitions as a function of the density of carriers in the system.
