Graphene shows promise as a future material for nanoelectronics owing to its compatibility with industry-standard lithographic processing, electron mobilities up to 150 times greater than Si and a thermal conductivity twice that of diamond. The electronic structure of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) and quantum dots (GQDs) has been predicted to depend(More)
We have developed a method for depositing graphene monolayers and bilayers with minimum lateral dimensions of 2-10 nm by the mechanical exfoliation of graphite onto the Si(100)-2 × 1:H surface. Room temperature, ultrahigh vacuum tunneling spectroscopy measurements of nanometer-sized single layer graphene reveal a size-dependent energy gap ranging from 0.1(More)
