COVER Low-energy (<10 millielectron volts) electronic spectra of bilayer graphene undergoing nematic phase transition from an isotropic, unperturbed form (top left) to an asymmetric form (bottom right). Electron-electron interactions in suspended graphene layers drive this transition, causing a change in the material's band structure and, thus, its electronic properties. See page 860.
