As a viable candidate for an all-carbon post-CMOS electronics revolution, epitaxial graphene has attracted significant attention. To realize its application potential, reliable methods for fabricating large-area single-crystalline graphene domains are required. A new way to synthesize high quality epitaxial graphene, namely “face-to-face” method, has been reported in this paper. The structure and morphologies of the samples are characterized by low-energy electron diffraction, atomic force… Expand
