  • Research: Graphene grows better on certain copper crystals

    An illustration of rendered experimental data showing the polycrystalline copper surface and the differing graphene coverages. Graphene grows in a single layer on the (111) copper surface and in islands and multilayers elsewhere.

      Professors Joseph Lyding, left; and Eric Pop, center; and graduate student Josh Wood identified copper crystal structures that work best for growing high-quality graphene.
