    A Wrinkled Wrinkle  
    Moiré reconstruction at the interface of two thin hexagonal boron nitride flakes can be imaged by transmission electron microscopy such as in this image with ~ 3 micrometer width. Here, different domains can be distinguished by selecting a specific Bragg diffraction beak. Characterizing Moiré reconstruction in these materials has proven to be a fascinating challenge for researchers of 2D materials who strive to understand how complex behaviour can emerge from the simple twisting of two flakes of the same material.
