Abstract

The binding energy curves of atomically thin layers are key quantities that enable the description of the interaction of two-dimensional (2D) materials with each other and with substrates. Here, the binding energy of bilayer graphene is calculated using highly accurate variational and diffusion quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) calculations[1] which are implemented in the CASINO code[2]. The results can be used in models of exfoliation and studies of the interaction of graphene and other layered materials.
