Over the past few years, the physics of low dimensional electronic systems has been revolutionized by the discovery of materials with very unusual electronic structures. Among these, graphene has taken center stage due to its relativistic-like electron dynamics and potential applications in nanotechnology. Moreover, the recent discovery that hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) is a nearly-ideal substrate for high mobility graphene devices has enabled a new generation of quantum transport experiments in graphene-based materials. In this talk I will present two of our recent experiments on quantum transport in graphene/hBN heterostructures: the measurement of the quantum spin Hall effect in monolayer graphene, and the realization of massive Dirac fermions and Hofstadter butterfly in nearly rotationally-aligned graphene/hBN devices.
