Hexagonal Boron Nitride Tunnel Barriers Grown on Graphite by High Temperature Molecular Beam Epitaxy (2016)
Journal Article
Cho, Y., Summerfield, A., Davies, A., Cheng, T. S., Smith, E. F., Mellor, C. J., …Novikov, S. V. (2016). Hexagonal Boron Nitride Tunnel Barriers Grown on Graphite by High Temperature Molecular Beam Epitaxy. Scientific Reports, 6(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/srep34474

We demonstrate direct epitaxial growth of high-quality hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) layers on graphite using high-temperature plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy. Atomic force microscopy reveals mono- and few-layer island growth, while conducting...

Strain-Engineered Graphene Grown on Hexagonal Boron Nitride by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (2016)
Journal Article
Summerfield, A., Davies, A., Cheng, T. S., Korolkov, V. V., Cho, Y., Mellor, C. J., …Beton, P. H. (2016). Strain-Engineered Graphene Grown on Hexagonal Boron Nitride by Molecular Beam Epitaxy. Scientific Reports, 6(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/srep22440

Graphene grown by high temperature molecular beam epitaxy on hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) forms continuous domains with dimensions of order 20 μm, and exhibits moiré patterns with large periodicities, up to ~30 nm, indicating that the layers are hig...
