One-Step Synthesis of a Hybrid of Graphene Films and Ribbons
Hybrid structures composed of graphene films and (0001) graphene ribbons perpendicular to the surface of a graphene-like film have been produced through the catalytic decomposition of a carbon-containing gas on an Al-coated SiO2/Si substrate having Ni catalyst islands on its surface. A hybrid structure has been grown by a one-step chemical vapor deposition process, by admitting acetylene into a chamber for a short time. The hybrid structures thus produced have been used to fabricate Hall sensors with a sensitivity of 3000 Ω/T. The synthesized hybrid structures are potential candidates for use in nanoelectronic devices, energy storage systems, etc. The technique proposed for the growth of such films is compatible with technologies that are employed in the electronics industry.
