Abstract

We report on the transport and structural properties of graphene layers grown epitaxially on hexagonal SiC. Experimentally, the charge carriers in epitaxial graphene are found to be chiral and the band structure is clearly related to the Dirac cone. To lowest order, epitaxial graphene appears to consist of stacked graphene sheets; the first layer is highly charged with the others carrying much lower charge.
