Epitaxial Graphene on Metal Surfaces

Graphene can be synthesized by chemical vapor deposition of hydrocarbon molecules on metal surfaces. In a DFG-funded project within the priority program 1459 "Graphene" we investigate thin, single crystal metal films as supports for graphene. These systems may provide the basis for an upscalable synthesis method for graphene that may overcome a major hurdle for making use of graphene in practical applications.

Scheme for using thin single crystal metal film on YSZ-buffered Si(111) wafers as supports for synthesizing graphene for devices.
