Title: Phases of a phenomenological model of twisted bilayer graphene

Abstract

In this study, we propose a lattice-scale two-band generalized Hubbard model as a caricature of the electronic structure of twisted bilayer graphene. Various possible broken-symmetry phases can arise, including a nematic phase (which is a form of orbital ferromagnet) and an orbital-triplet spin-singlet superconducting phase. Lastly, concerning the mechanism of superconductivity, we propose an analogy with superconductivity in alkali-doped C 60 in which a violation of Hund's first rule plays a central role.
