What Has Been Achieved:

Deconvoluting the impact of processing on remote epitaxy of 3D materials using graphene as the interface layer.

Importance of the Achievement:

This work provides the first understanding and impact of graphene layer transfer and 2D/3D interface properties on remote epitaxy.  It provides an important how-to guide for researchers interested in remote epitaxy regarding the importance of the graphene layer and how it is prepared.

Unique Feature(s) of the MIP that Enabled this Achievement:

Large area epitaxial graphene (2DCC) and synthesis of complex oxides (PARADIM)


ACS Nano 2021, 15, 6, 10587–10596
