Fractional quantum Hall effect in graphene

Electrons move in circular orbits above a hexagonal graphene surface.

Under certain conditions, electrons in two-dimensional material can become locked into tight circular orbits of particular sizes and energies, known as the fractional quantum Hall effect.
