A single-crystal sheet of graphene is synthesized on the low-symmetry substrate Ir(110) by thermal decomposition of C2H4 at 1500 K. Using scanning tunneling microscopy, low-energy electron diffraction, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, and ab initio density functional theory the structure and electronic properties of the adsorbed graphene sheet and its moiré with the substrate are uncovered. The adsorbed graphene layer forms a wave pattern of nm wave length with a corresponding… 



Cluster Superlattice Membranes.

The versatility of the membrane composition, its mechanical stability, and the simplicity of the transfer procedure make cluster superlattice membranes a promising material in catalysis, magnetism, energy conversion, and opto-electronics.

Growth of Graphene on the Cu(110) Surface

One of the remaining problems for the application of graphene in solid-state devices is the production of large-area graphene films with low defect density and high uniformity including crystalline ...

Quasiliquid Layer Promotes Hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) Single-Domain Growth: h-BN on Pt(110).

Because epitaxial deposition of Pt(110) on various substrates has been demonstrated, the present system appears scalable, and its regular 1D grooves render it a promising template for nanowire arrays.

Growth temperature dependent graphene alignment on Ir(111)

The morphology of graphene monolayers on Ir(111) prepared by thermal decomposition of ethylene between 1000 and 1530 K was studied with high resolution low energy electron diffraction. In addition to

Structure and magnetic properties of ultra thin textured EuO films on graphene

We present a straightforward and reproducible method to grow stoichiometric and single phase (100) textured EuO thin films on epitaxial graphene. Depending on coverage, either separated EuO grains or

Sequential control of step-bunching during graphene growth on SiC (0001)

We have investigated the relation between the step-bunching and graphene growth phenomena on an SiC substrate. We found that only a minimum amount of step-bunching occurred during the graphene growth

High-Coverage CO Adsorption and Dissociation on Ir(111), Ir(100), and Ir(110) from Computations

CO adsorption on the perfect Ir(111) as well as the unreconstructed Ir(100) and Ir(110) surfaces at different coverages has been computed at the level of periodic density functional theory. General...

Influence of metal support in-plane symmetry on the corrugation of hexagonal boron nitride and graphene monolayers

Predicting the properties of two-dimensional (2D) materials as graphene and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) monolayers after their growth on any given substrate is a major challenge. While the

Molecular beam epitaxy of quasi-freestanding transition metal disulphide monolayers on van der Waals substrates: a growth study

Based on an ultra-high vacuum compatible two-step molecular beam epitaxy synthesis with elemental sulphur, we grow clean, well-oriented, and almost defect-free monolayer islands and layers of the
