Smoothing Graphene Several methods have been reported for the growth of monolayer graphene into areas large enough for integration into silicon electronics. However, the electronic properties of the graphene are often degraded by grain boundaries and wrinkles. Lee et al. (p. 286, published online 3 April) showed that flat, single crystals of monolayer graphene can be grown by chemical-vapor deposition on silicon wafers covered by a germanium layer that aligns the grains. The graphene can be dry… 

Wafer-scale single-domain-like graphene by defect-selective atomic layer deposition of hexagonal ZnO.

It is demonstrated how ZnO-stitched CVD graphene can be successfully integrated into wafer-scale arrays of top-gated field-effect transistors on 4-inch Si and polymer substrates, revealing remarkable device-to-device uniformity.

Using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, we studied the electronic structure of graphene grown on a Ge (110) wafer, where a single-crystal single-layer graphene was recently grown using

Direct Growth of Graphene on Silicon by Metal-Free Chemical Vapor Deposition

This work reports the growth of graphene directly on an upside-down placed, single-crystal silicon substrate using metal-free, ambient-pressure chemical vapor deposition, and the process of graphene growth on silicon can be identified.

Supporting Information for Direct Growth of Graphene on Silicon by Metal-Free Chemical Vapor Deposition

The metal-free synthesis of graphene on singlecrystal silicon substrates, the most common commercial semiconductor, is of paramount significance for many technological applications. In this work, we

Epitaxial growth of a single-crystal hybridized boron nitride and graphene layer on a wide-band gap semiconductor.

It is demonstrated that a single-crystal h-BN/graphene lateral structure fabricated on a wide-gap semiconductor substrate can be directly applied to devices without a further transfer process, as reported for epitaxial graphene on a SiC substrate.

Single Crystalline Metal Films as Substrates for Graphene Growth

Single crystalline metal films deposited on YSZ‐buffered Si(111) wafers were investigated with respect to their suitability as substrates for epitaxial graphene. Graphene was grown by CVD of ethylene



Layer-Resolved Graphene Transfer via Engineered Strain Layers

A method in which a graphene film of one or two monolayers grown on SiC is exfoliated via the stress induced with a Ni film and transferred to another substrate, resulting in a monolayer graphene film that is continuous and single-oriented is described.

Large-scale pattern growth of graphene films for stretchable transparent electrodes

The direct synthesis of large-scale graphene films using chemical vapour deposition on thin nickel layers is reported, and two different methods of patterning the films and transferring them to arbitrary substrates are presented, implying that the quality of graphene grown by chemical vapours is as high as mechanically cleaved graphene.

Large-Area Synthesis of High-Quality and Uniform Graphene Films on Copper Foils

It is shown that graphene grows in a self-limiting way on copper films as large-area sheets (one square centimeter) from methane through a chemical vapor deposition process, and graphene film transfer processes to arbitrary substrates showed electron mobilities as high as 4050 square centimeters per volt per second at room temperature.

By ambient-pressure chemical vapor deposition, large-scale and uniform depositon of high-quality graphene directly on a Ge substrate which is wafer scale is demonstrated, allowing integration with high-volume production of complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors (CMOS).

The Role of Surface Oxygen in the Growth of Large Single-Crystal Graphene on Copper

It was found that the presence of surface oxygen could limit the number of nucleation sites and allowed centimeter-scale domains to grow through a diffusion-limited mechanism, and the electrical conductivity of the graphene was comparable to that of exfoliated graphene.
