Quasi-free-standing epitaxial graphene is obtained on SiC(0001) by hydrogen intercalation. The hydrogen moves between the (6 square root(3) x 6 square root(3))R30 degrees reconstructed initial carbon layer and the SiC substrate. The topmost Si atoms which for epitaxial graphene are covalently bound to this buffer layer, are now saturated by hydrogen bonds. The buffer layer is turned into a quasi-free-standing graphene monolayer with its typical linear pi bands. Similarly, epitaxial monolayer… Expand
Structural investigations of hydrogenated epitaxial graphene grown on 4H-SiC (0001)

Quasi-free-standing epitaxial graphene on SiC (0001) by fluorine intercalation from a molecular source.
Novel structures due to a highly localized perturbation caused by the presence of adsorbed fluorine were produced in the intercalation process and investigated and photoemission spectroscopy is used to confirm these electronic and structural changes. Expand

We propose a table-top method to obtain bilayer quasi-free-standing epitaxial-graphene (QFSEG) on SiC(0001). By applying a microwave annealing in air to a monolayer epitaxial graphene (EG) grown onExpand
Approaching truly freestanding graphene: the structure of hydrogen-intercalated graphene on 6H-SiC(0001).
A structural comparison to other graphenes suggests that hydrogen-intercalated graphene on 6H-SiC(0001) approaches ideal graphene, and a density functional calculation finds a purely physisorptive adsorption height. Expand

We report on an investigation of quasi-free-standing graphene on 6H-SiC(0001) which was prepared by intercalation of hydrogen under the buffer layer. Using infrared absorption spectroscopy, we proveExpand
Charge-neutral epitaxial graphene on 6H–SiC(0001) via FeSi intercalation
Abstract Graphene grown epitaxially on SiC(0001) substrates always exhibits n-type doping due to the coupling interaction between the substrate and graphene. The electronic properties of epitaxialExpand
