Probing the coupling between the components in a graphene–mesoporous germanium nanocomposite using high-pressure Raman spectroscopy
The nature of the interface between the components of a nanocomposite is a major determining factor in the resulting properties. Using a graphene–mesoporous germanium nanocomposite with a core–shell
Enhanced Thermopower of Saturated Molecules by Noncovalent Anchor‐Induced Electron Doping of Single‐Layer Graphene Electrode
It is shown that introducing noncovalent contact with a single-layer graphene (SLG) electrode improves the thermopower of saturated molecules as compared to the traditional gold-thiolate covalentcontact.
On the Impact of Substrate Uniform Mechanical Tension on the Graphene Electronic Structure
Employing density functional theory calculations, we obtain the possibility of fine-tuning the bandgap in graphene deposited on the hexagonal boron nitride and graphitic carbon nitride substrates. We
Anomalous phonon softening of G-band in compressed graphitic carbon nitride due to strong electrostatic repulsion
Graphitic carbon nitride (C2N and C3N) with various π electron distributions on layers have been studied under pressure through a combined theoretical and experimental approach and a comparison with
Mechanical properties of graphene
This paper reviews the mechanical properties of graphene with particular attention to what is established and what is still uncertain. It clarifies the thickness and the elastic constants, and by
Reversible Pressure-induced Partial Phase Transition in Few-Layer Black Phosphorus.
First-principles calculations provide insight into the behavior of the Raman modes of BP under high pressure and reveal the mechanism responsible for the partial phase transition from BP to bP, corresponding to a metastable equilibrium state where both phases coexist.


Graphene under direct compression: Stress effects and interlayer coupling
In this work we explore mechanical properties of graphene samples of variable thickness. For this purpose, we coupled a high pressure sapphire anvil cell to a microRaman spectrometer. From the
Room‐Temperature Compression‐Induced Diamondization of Few‐Layer Graphene
Experimental and theoretical evidence for compression-induced diamondization of few-layer graphene is reported and electric force microscopy measurements reveal a compression- induced charging inhibition of bilayer and multilayer graphene.
Biaxial Strain Transfer in Supported Graphene.
The limits of biaxial compressive strain transfer among SiO2, diamond, and sapphire substrates and graphene are studied and it is shown that the relevant parameter governing the graphene mechanical response is not the applied pressure but rather the strain that is transmitted from the substrate.
Optical separation of mechanical strain from charge doping in graphene.
It is suggested that substrate-mediated mechanical strain is a ubiquitous phenomenon in two-dimensional materials and the proposed analysis will be of great use in characterizing graphene-based materials and devices.
Reversible optical doping of graphene
It is demonstrated that the charge carrier density of graphene exfoliated on a SiO2/Si substrate can be finely and reversibly tuned between hole and electron doping with visible photons, suggesting that optically gated graphene devices operating with a sub-second time scale can be envisioned and that Raman spectroscopy is not always as non-invasive as generally assumed.
Unravelling external perturbation effects on the optical phonon response of graphene
Raman spectroscopy is a powerful and nondestructive probe that demonstrates its efficiency in revealing the physical properties of low-dimensional sp2 carbon systems. It gives access to the number of
Raman Spectroscopy as a Tool to Address Individual Graphene Layers in Few-Layer Graphene
We developed a new general approach to address individual graphene sheets in few-layer graphene by Raman spectroscopy. Our method is based on isotope labeling of individual layers during their

The effect of pressure – by definition a 3-dimensional concept – on 2-dimensional systems brings a number of fundamental questions, which have been partly answered through newly engineered samples
Addressing Raman features of individual layers in isotopically labeled Bernal stacked bilayer graphene
In this report important Raman modes for the evaluation of strain in graphene (the 2D and 2D') are analyzed. The isotope labeling is used to disentangle contribution of individual graphene layers of
