The application of graphene in nanoscale electronic devices requires the deliberate control of the density and character of its charge carriers. We show by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy that substantial hole doping in the conical band structure of epitaxial graphene monolayers can be achieved by the adsorption of bismuth, antimony, or gold. In the case of gold doping the Dirac point is shifted into the unoccupied states. Atomic doping presents excellent perspectives for large scale…

Substrate-induced bandgap opening in epitaxial graphene.

It is shown that when graphene is epitaxially grown on SiC substrate, a gap of approximately 0.26 eV is produced and it is proposed that the origin of this gap is the breaking of sublattice symmetry owing to the graphene-substrate interaction.
