A group led by Prof. Gao Chunlei in collaboration with Prof. Wu Shiwei and Prof. Xu Xiaodong has found thebilayer CrBr3 grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) has two kinds of stacking order with different layer twisting angles: R-type stacking structure, where the adjacent layers are oriented in the same direction, and H-type stacking structure, where the adjacent layers are oriented in the opposite direction. The result has been published in Science on Nov. 22.
