Tailoring the properties of low dimensional electronic systems in van der Waals heterostructures

Nissan Itzhaki, Tel Aviv University
Cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation data from WMAP, SPT, ACT and Planck combined with large scale structure data support the standard model of cosmology, but also provide interesting hints for new physics. We discuss some of the unexpected features in the data (that are often referred to as anomalies) and their possible theoretical origin.
