Graphene has been attracting great interest because of its distinctive band structure and physical properties. Today, graphene is limited to small sizes because it is produced mostly by exfoliating graphite. We grew large-area graphene films of the order of centimeters on copper substrates by chemical vapor deposition using methane. The films are predominantly single-layer graphene, with a
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is the most common way of producing graphene and is performed in many ways throughout the world. Growing graphene directly into electronic devices is a highly desirable process, but has been difficult to perform due to high process temperatures (of around 1000 °C) damaging the substrate components.
With its growing use in numerous applications, the demand for graphene has steadily increased over the years. This heightened interest has prompted new research behind the methods for synthesizing graphene — one of which is chemical vapor deposition.See how one research team used modeling to analyze and enhance the CVD graphene growth mechanism.
2019-5-13 · In 2006, the first attempt at synthesis of graphene on Ni foil via CVD method was found using camphor (terpenoid, a white transparent solid of chemical formula C 10 H 16 O) as the precursor 84.
