Title: Characterization of N-doped multilayer graphene grown on 4H-SiC (0001)

Large-area graphene film doped with hetero-atoms is of great interest for a wide spectrum of nanoelectronics applications, such as field effect devices, super capacitors, fuel cells among many others. Here, we report the structural and electronic properties of nitrogen doped multilayer graphene on 4H-SiC (0001). The incorporation of nitrogen during the growth causes an increase in the D band on the Raman signature indicating that the nitrogen is creating defects. The analysis of micro-Raman mapping of G, D, 2D bands shows a predominantly trilayer graphene with a D band inherent to doping and inhomogeneous dopant distribution at the step edges. Ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) indicates an n type work function (WF) of 4.1 eV. In addition, a top gate FET device was fabricated showing n-type I-V characteristic after the desorption of oxygen with high electron and holes mobilities.
