Graphene on Silicon: Applications and Perspectives 

Written by Maria Torres Arango

Even though the extraordinary properties of graphene have motivated extensive research, many challenges remain, especially in producing large-area substrates and in transferring the graphene to a different substrate from which it was first synthesized. Francesca Iacopy, from Griffith University, showed recent developments in graphene fabrication. Using Cu/Ni alloys, bilayer graphene on various substrates can be realized at temperatures comparable to conventional semiconductor processing. This metal alloy approach can be tuned to produce rough surfaces that lead to high specific-area graphene structures, which are of special importance in applications such as energy storage. Refinement of the processing is still to be done; however, this versatile method shows promising pathways toward graphene implementation in daily life devices. 



Such advanced process indicates the modernization of nano carbon materials, which also helps to improve scientific research.
