The direct growth of graphene on insulating substrate is highly desirable for the commercial scale integration of graphene due to the potential lower cost and better process control. We report a simple, direct deposition of nanocrystalline graphene (NCG) on insulating substrates via catalyst-free plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition at relatively low(More)
van der Waals (vdW) interactions play a central role in the surface-related physics and chemistry. Tuning of the correlated charge fluctuation in a vdW complex is a plausible way of modulating the molecules interaction at the atomic surface. Here, we report the vdW interaction tunability of the graphene-CO2 complex by combining the first-principles(More)
Detection of individual molecular adsorption, which represents the ultimate resolution of gas sensing, has rarely been realized with solid-state devices. So far, only a few studies have reported detection of individual adsorption by measuring the variation of electronic transport stemming from the charge transfer of adsorbate. We report room-temperature(More)
Following the rapid development of the electronics industry and technology, it is expected that future electronic devices will operate based on functional units at the level of electrically active molecules or even atoms. One pathway to observe and characterize such fundamental operation is to focus on identifying isolated or coupled dopants in nanoscale(More)
The transformation of systematic vacuum and hydrogen annealing effects in graphene devices on the SiO2 surface is reported based on experimental and van der Waals interaction corrected density functional theory (DFT) simulation results. Vacuum annealing removes p-type dopants and reduces charged impurity scattering in graphene. Moreover, it induces n-type(More)
In this paper we first present a new hybrid fabrication process of downscaled graphene nanodevices based on direct ultrafine milling process by using atomic-size helium ion beam and the electron beam lithography process. We then describe the bilayer graphene single carrier transistors (GSCTs) and their Coulomb oscillation characteristics at 1.7 K. Unique(More)
Graphene possesses remarkable electronic and mechanical properties and provides a promising platform to explore future nanoelectronic and nano electro-mechanical (NEM) devices for challenging applications. This paper presents a brief overview of our recent attempts of developing novel graphene-based nanoscale devices. We first present state-of-the-art(More)
A focused helium ion beam was used to introduce nano-sized gap chains in graphene. The effect of beam scanning strategies in the fabrication of the nano-gap chains was investigated. The tuning of graphene conductivity has been achieved by modulating the magnitude and uniformity of the ion dose and hence the morphology of the nano-gap chains. A model based(More)
In this paper, we report the finite element method (FEM) simulation of double-clamped graphene nanoelectromechanical (NEM) switches. Pull-in and pull-out characteristics are analyzed for graphene NEM switches with different dimensions and these are consistent with the experimental results. This numerical model is used to study the scaling nature of the(More)
