We employed graphene as a patternable template to protect the intrinsic surface states of thin films of topological insulators (TIs) from environment. Here we find that the graphene provides high-quality interface so that the Shubnikov de Haas (SdH) oscillation associated with a topological surface state could be observed at the interface of a metallic(More)
The properties of few layer (one layer (1 L) to four layer (4 L)) graphenes doped by adsorption and intercalation of Br(2) and I(2) vapors are investigated. The Raman spectra of the graphene G vibrations are observed as a function of the number of layers. There is no evidence for chemical reaction disrupting the basal plane pi electron conjugation.(More)
We report the optical reflectivity and Raman scattering of few layer (L) graphene exposed to K and Rb vapors. Samples many tens of layers thick show the reflectivity and Raman spectra of the stage 1 bulk alkali intercalation compounds (GICs) KC(8) and RbC(8). However, these bulk optical and Raman properties only begin to appear in samples more than about 15(More)
We report synthesis and transport properties of the minimal graphite intercalation compound, a ferric chloride (FeCl(3))(n) island monolayer inside bilayer graphene. Chemical doping by the intercalant is simultaneously probed by micro-Raman spectroscopy and Hall measurements. Quantum oscillations of conductivity originate from microscopic domains of(More)
We investigated the subdomain structures of single-layer graphene oxide (GO) by characterizing local friction and conductance using conductive atomic force microscopy. Friction and conductance mapping showed that a single-layer GO flake has subdomains several tens to a few hundreds of nanometers in lateral size. The GO subdomains exhibited low friction(More)
Strong Raman scattering is observed from iodine anions adsorbed at ca. 3% coverage on single layer graphene. In addition, the Raman signal from just one bromine intercalation layer inside three and four layer thick graphenes is observed. We analyze and model the intramolecular electronic, charge-transfer, and multiple reflection electromagnetic mechanisms(More)
To design a high-performance photocatalytic system with TiO2, it is necessary to reduce the bandgap and enhance the absorption efficiency. The reduction of the bandgap to the visible range was investigated with reference to the surface distortion of anatase TiO2 nanoparticles induced by varying Fe doping concentrations. Fe-doped TiO2 nanoparticles (Fe@TiO2)(More)
ZnO nanorods have been grown on Si(001) wafer and fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) glass substrates for 1 and 4 h with the hydrothermal methods. The morphologies and photocatalytic activities of the ZnO nanorods were found to depend on the substrates. We investigated their properties by using spectroscopic analysis and demonstrated that the shape of nanorod(More)
We observe the modified surface states of an epitaxial thin film of a homologous series of (Bi2)m(Bi2Se3)n, as a topological insulator (TI), by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy measurements. A thin film with m : n  =  1 : 3 (Bi8Se9) has been grown with Bi2 bilayers embedded every other three quintuple layers (QLs) of Bi2Se3. Despite the reduced(More)
