Recently, correlated insulators and superconductivity have been discovered experimentally in twisted bilayer graphene (TBG) [1]. The Moiré pattern of the bilayers at so-called “magic angles” leads to localization of the low-energy electrons in the AA-stacking regions, reflected by very flat regions in the band structure [2]. This reduction of the kinetic energy enhances the relative importance of interactions and thus renders the bilayer systems much more susceptible to correlation effects than a single layer. We investigate the magnetic instabilities at half filling in TBG using a real-space Hartree-Fock and RPA analysis. We find that at charge neutrality an antiferromagnetic state localized in the AA region emerges for values of the Coulomb interaction U that are an order of magnitude smaller than what would be required to render an antiferromagnetic state in a single graphene sheet. Furthermore, doping of a few electrons per Moiré unit cell pushes the system into a ferromagnetic phase.
