Title: Copper vapor-assisted growth of hexagonal graphene domains on silica islands

Abstract

Silica (SiO{sub 2}) islands with a dendritic structure were prepared on polycrystalline copper foil, using silane (SiH{sub 4}) as a precursor, by annealing at high temperature. Assisted by copper vapor from bare sections of the foil, single-layer hexagonal graphene domains were grown directly on the SiO{sub 2} islands by chemical vapor deposition. Scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, Raman spectra, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirm that hexagonal graphene domains, each measuring several microns, were synthesized on the silica islands.
