Graphene Film Growth on Cu Foil via Direct Carbon Atoms Deposition by Using SSMBE


Article Preview

Graphene film has been successfully grown on Cu foil by directly depositing carbon atoms with a solid source molecular beam epitaxy (SSMBE) system. The structural and electronic properties of the graphene sample are characterized by Raman spectroscopy, near edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Results indicate that the graphene has the tubostratic stacking structure.
