Lattice-matched epitaxial graphene grown on boron nitride (2017)
Journal Article
Davies, A., Albar, J., Summerfield, A., Thomas, J. C., Cheng, T. S., Korolkov, V. V., …Beton, P. H. (2018). Lattice-matched epitaxial graphene grown on boron nitride. Nano Letters, 18(1), https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.nanolett.7b04453

Lattice-matched graphene on hexagonal boron nitride is expected to lead to the formation of a band-gap but requires the formation of highly strained material and has not hitherto been realised. We demonstrate that aligned, lattice-matched graphene ca... Read More about Lattice-matched epitaxial graphene grown on boron nitride.

In graphene devices decorated with a layer of near-infrared colloidal PbS quantum dots (QDs), the choice of the QD capping ligands and the integrity of the QD layer have a strong influence on the doping, carrier mobility, and photoresponse. By using... Read More about Ligand-Induced Control of Photoconductive Gain and Doping in a Hybrid Graphene-Quantum Dot Transistor.
