Interfacing graphene with solid-state devices and maintaining it free of contamination is a crucial step towards a functioning device, be it a semiconductor structure or any other device for technological applications. We take advantage of the catalytic properties of platinum metals to completely remove the polymer capping after the transfer of macroscopic graphene sheets to a solid-state device. For that purpose a platinum metal coated structure is brought in close proximity with the polymer… Expand
