Graphene is a promising contender to succeed the throne of silicon in electronics. To this goal, large-scale epitaxial growth of graphene on substrates should be developed. Among various methods along this line, epitaxial growth of graphene on SiC substrates by thermal decomposition of surface layers has proved itself quite satisfactory both in quality and in process reliability. Even modulation of structural and hence electronic properties of graphene is possible by tuning the graphene/SiC… Expand

In Situ SR-XPS Observation of Ni-Assisted Low-Temperature Formation of Epitaxial Graphene on 3C-SiC/Si
Low-temperature formation of graphene was performed on Si substrates by using an ultrathin Ni layer deposited on a 3C-SiC thin film heteroepitaxially grown on a Si substrate and results show that Ni silicide and Ni carbide formation play an essential role. Expand


Epitaxial graphene on ruthenium.
It is shown that epitaxy on Ru(0001) produces arrays of macroscopic single-crystalline graphene domains in a controlled, layer-by-layer fashion, and demonstrates a route towards rational graphene synthesis on transition-metal templates for applications in electronics, sensing or catalysis. Expand
