Doping is a common and effective approach to tailor semiconductor properties. Here, we demonstrate the growth of large-area sulfur (S)-doped graphene sheets on copper substrate via the chemical vapor deposition technique by using liquid organics (hexane in the presence of S) as the precursor. We found that S could be doped into graphene’s lattice and mainly formed linear nanodomains, which was proved by elemental analysis, high resolution transmission microscopy and Raman spectra.

Controlled Chemical Synthesis in CVD Graphene

Abstract Due to the unique properties of graphene, single layer, bilayer or even few layer graphene peeled off from bulk graphite cannot meet the need of practical applications. Large size graphene

Synthesis, characterization and electrical properties of silicon-doped graphene films

Theoretical calculations have predicted that silicon doping modifies the electronic structure of graphene; however, it is difficult to synthesize high-quality silicon-doped graphene (SiG), thus the

Gas adsorption on graphene doped with B, N, Al, and S: A theoretical study

The adsorption of several common gas molecules over boron-, nitrogen-, aluminum-, and sulfur-doped graphene was theoretically studied using density-functional theory. B- and N-doped graphene retain a

Is it possible to dope single-walled carbon nanotubes and graphene with sulfur?

The authors' simulations indicate that sulfur doping can modify the electronic structure of the SWCNTs and graphene, depending on the sulfur content, and S-doped graphene may be a smart choice for constructing nanoelectronic devices, since it is possible to modulate the electronic properties of the sheet by adjusting the amount of sulfur introduced.

A roadmap to high quality chemically prepared graphene

Graphene was discovered half a decade ago and proved the existence of a two-dimensional system which becomes stable as a result of 3D corrugation. It appeared very quickly that this exceptional

Raman spectrum of graphene and graphene layers.

This work shows that graphene's electronic structure is captured in its Raman spectrum that clearly evolves with the number of layers, and allows unambiguous, high-throughput, nondestructive identification of graphene layers, which is critically lacking in this emerging research area.
