Controlling the orientation, edge geometry, and thickness of chemical vapor deposition graphene.
We report that the shape, orientation, edge geometry, and thickness of chemical vapor deposition graphene domains can be controlled by the crystallographic orientations of Cu substrates. Under low-pressure conditions, single-layer graphene domains align with zigzag edges parallel to a single <101> direction on Cu(111) and Cu(101), while bilayer domains align to two directions on Cu(001). Under atmospheric pressure conditions, hexagonal domains also preferentially align. This discovery c...Expand abstract
