The doping of graphene to tune its electronic properties is essential for its further use in carbon-based electronics. Adapting strategies from classical silicon-based semiconductor technology, we use the incorporation of heteroatoms in the 2D graphene network as a straightforward way to achieve this goal. Here, we report on the synthesis of boron-doped graphene on Ni(111) in a chemical vapor deposition process of triethylborane on the one hand and by segregation of boron from the bulk of the…

Atomistic Interrogation of B-N Co-dopant Structures and Their Electronic Effects in Graphene.
There is a thermodynamic driving force for B and N atoms to cluster into BNC structures in graphene, rather than randomly distribute into isolated B andN graphitic dopants, although under the present growth conditions, kinetics limit segregation of large B-N domains.
Charge transfer and electronic doping in nitrogen-doped graphene
The comparison between tunneling and angle-resolved photoelectron spectra reveals the spatial inhomogeneity of the Dirac energy shift and that a phonon correction has to be applied to the tunneling measurements, and XPS data demonstrate the dependence of the N 1s binding energy of graphitic nitrogen on the nitrogen concentration.
Epitaxial B-Graphene: Large-Scale Growth and Atomic Structure.
Embedding foreign atoms or molecules in graphene has become the key approach in its functionalization and is intensively used for tuning its structural and electronic properties. Here, we present an
Formation, Energetics, and Electronic Properties of Graphene Monolayer and Bilayer Doped with Heteroatoms
Doping with heteroatoms is one of the most effective methods to tailor the electronic properties of carbon nanomaterials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes, and such nanomaterials doped with
Investigation on tunable electronic properties of semiconducting graphene induced by boron and sulfur doping
Abstract The density functional theory (DFT) simulation is performed to systematically investigate the doping effect of the boron (B) and sulfur (S) atoms on the electronic and adsorption properties
Electronic and Chemical Properties of Donor, Acceptor Centers in Graphene.
This work reports a reliable and tunable method for preparation of high-quality boron and nitrogen co-doped graphene on silicon carbide substrate and shows that chemical identification of borons and nitrogen substitutional defects can be achieved in the STM channel due to the quantum interference effect.
Stability and electronic properties of isomers of B/N co-doped graphene
We study and compare some of the possible isomers of BN co-doped graphene on the basis of their composition and electronic properties. The effect of doping has been studied theoretically by

Large-Scale Sublattice Asymmetry in Pure and Boron-Doped Graphene.
Using photoelectron diffraction and spectroscopy, it is demonstrated a selective incorporation of boron impurities into only one of the two graphene sublattices, predicting that such boreon-doped graphene possesses a band gap that can be precisely controlled by the dopant concentration.
Tailoring graphene-based electrodes from semiconducting to metallic to increase the energy density in supercapacitors.
It is shown that a combination of doping and vacancies at realistic concentrations is sufficient to increase the capacitance of a graphene-based electrode to within 1 μF cm(−2) from that of a metallic surface.
