Growth of graphene layers for thin films
B.H. Hong and H.R. Jeon, Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea
Graphene has received considerable attention due to its fascinating physical properties such as quantum electronic transport, a tunable band gap, extremely high mobility, high elasticity and electromechanical modulation. This chapter describes the direct synthesis of large-scale graphene films using chemical vapour deposition on thin nickel layers, and presents two different methods of patterning the films and transferring them to arbitrary substrates. Furthermore, we detail the roll-to-roll production and wet chemical doping of predominantly monolayer 30-inch graphene films grown by chemical vapour deposition onto flexible ...
