Synthesis of Graphene on Ni/SiC Structure

Open access


graphene is a promising material with excellent electrical, thermal, optical and mechanical properties. Therefore, it is a material of high relevance for various applications in many branches of technique. Graphene has received much attention recently in scientific community. The contribution reports formation and characterization of few-layer graphene (FLG) films on a SiC substrate from nickel silicide supersaturated with carbon by annealing at a favourable low temperature.
