Abstract The structure and the electrical, mechanical and optical properties of few-layer graphene (FLG) synthesized by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) on a Ni-coated substrate were studied. Atomic resolution transmission electron microscope (TEM) images show highly crystalline single-layer parts of the sample changing to multi-layer domains where crystal boundaries are connected by chemical bonds. This suggests two different growth mechanisms. CVD and carbon segregation participate in the…
