Oxidation of graphite produces graphite oxide, which is dispersible in water as individual platelets. After deposition onto Si/SiO2 substrates, chemical reduction produces graphene sheets. Electrical conductivity measurements indicate a 10000-fold increase in conductivity after chemical reduction to graphene. Tapping mode atomic force microscopy measurements show one to two layer graphene steps. Electrodes patterned onto a reduced graphite oxide film demonstrate a field effect response when the… 
Direct writing of electronic devices on graphene oxide by catalytic scanning probe lithography
A platinum-coated atomic force microscope tip is used to locally catalyse the reduction of insulating graphene oxide in the presence of hydrogen to generate nanoribbons with widths ranging from 20 to 80 nm and conductivities of >104 S m−1, and a field effect transistor is produced.
