Growth of Graphene Films
Graphene, a one atom thick sp2 hybridized carbon layer, is the emerging material in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Its amazing properties allow researchers to consider applications ranging from large scale electronic and photovoltaic devices to spintronics. However such developments require a reliable, low cost and easily scalable synthesis process of graphene films. We are investigating different growth issues in view to finally propose a preparation technique that will allow depositing high quality films over large areas.
