Visualization of nGLs
Optical Image
Raman scattering is found to be sensitive
to the number of layers in nGLs.

Splitting of electronic bands is
captured in the shape of 2D band.
1GL shows a single 2D peaks while
nGLs (small n) show 4 peaks which
evolve in 2 peaks for higher n.

Contrast in optical image strongly depends on the
thickness of oxide as well as the wavelength of
illuminating light. Graphene shows high contrast in
white light illumination for ~ 100 nm thick SiO2
Transport in FET geometry for nGLs
shows Dirac peak with finite resistance.
Graphene (1GL) FETs patterned into
Hall bar and van der Pauw geometries
show half-integer quantum Hall
sequence 4(n+1/2) at low temperature.

200-400 nm PZT
Non-volatile memory device based on nGL-FET
using ferroelectric film Pb(Zr Ti)O3 (PZT) as gate
oxide. The large remnant polarization field of PZT ( ~
40 µC/cm2) can potentially induce enormous 2D
carrier doping (~3x1014/cm2) and lead to non-volatile
memory effect. Pronounced hysteresis in carrier
density and resistivity as a function of Vg with long
retention time is observed in our nGL-FET.

Graphene phonon dispersion curves calculated from the
bicontinuum theory (solid lines), compared to EELS data.
The bi-continuum theory of graphene provides a unified
treatment of a wide range of electromechanical couplings
well beyond that accessible to a traditional singlecontinuum (i.e. elastic) model.
Chemisorption of hydrogen can
generate well-defined graphenic
bi- ribbons which access a new
regime of electronic coupling
wherein characteristic phonon
energies exceed the characteristic
electronic energy scales for band
dispersion
and
inter-ribbon
coupling.
