Graphene-on-Porous-Silicon Carbide Structures
3D–SiC/graphene structures were fabricated on the basis of SiC wafers by first producing micro–porous material by anodization, and then using two–step annealing to modify the porous matrix and cover it with a 2D carbon coating. Topological features of the obtained structures extend from macro– down to nano–scale. It is expected that such topology in combination with high resistance to corrosion, and bio–compatibility of both SiC and nano–carbon will make the 3D–SiC/graphene structures prospective for tissue–inducing matrixes.
