Park group reports single layer graphene growth on copper surfaces

November 9th, 2009  -  

Single layers of carbon atoms, called graphene sheets, are lightweight, strong, electrically semi-conducting -- and notoriously difficult and expensive to make.

Now, a Cornell research team has invented a simple way to make graphene electrical devices by growing the graphene directly onto a silicon wafer. The work was published online on Oct. 27, 2009, in the journal Nano Letters
