Graphene prepared by chemical vapour deposition process

  • 22 Accesses


The submitted work is focused on graphene preparation using the chemical vapour deposition method employing a cost-saving cold-wall reactor. Optimization of the parameters and conditions of the growth technology was pursued. We succeeded in preparing and transferring monolayer graphene onto a dielectric substrate and in studying its properties by various analytical methods in great detail. The transferred graphene material displays well-resolved band structure. The band structure evidences that undoped material was prepared, with Dirac points lying at the Fermi level.
