High quality CVD graphene

A widely followed technique to produce high-quality graphene for large scale applications is chemical vapor deposition (CVD). 

The key advantages of CVD graphene are: 1) the ease of transfer onto any substrate of choice, 2) charge density homogeneity and tunable functionality using a back gate i.e. without additional sample treatment procedures and 3) the wide choice of growth substrate and gas precursors.

We characterize our graphene films using large area Raman mapping, XPS, LEEM and electrical transport measurements. Furthermore, we are able to tune the size of individual graphene grains from tens of micrometers to millimetre scale.”
