AbstractThis thesis gives instructions on how to create and verify good quality graphene and hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) flakes, how to determine graphene's edge conformation, and how to use that information to assemble stacks of graphene on hBN with a certain twist angle. It also gives information on how twist angle affects the Raman spectrum taken of a heterostructure and how to use that information to verify the twist angle. Data provided by literature is confirmed by experiment when possible.
