We have performed scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM/STS) measurements as well as ab initio calculations for graphene monolayers on clean and hydrogen(H)-passivated silicon (100) (Si(100)/H) surfaces. In order to experimentally study the same graphene piece on both substrates, we develop a method to depassivate hydrogen from under graphene monolayers on the Si(100)/H surface. Our work represents the first demonstration of successful and reproducible depassivation of hydrogen… Expand
