a) Sample fabrication. A thick silicon on insulator (SOI) sample is implanted with carbon ions and recrystallized by annealing at high temperature. By optical lithography and chemical etching, membranes are formed and then SiN is deposited. b) Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of SOI membranes before SiN deposition. c) SEM of a strained SOI membrane with SiN on top. d) Photoluminescence spectra from an ensemble of G-centers as a function of the membrane size.

Left: ensemble of single photon emitters originating from moiré excitons formed by electrons and holes confined in different 2D crystals. Center: signature of moiré exciton delocalisation induced by temperature as deduced by the rate of  exciton increase with potential population. Right: signature of moiré exciton delocalisation induced by temperature as deduced by the exciton magnetic moment.
