    Graphene Preparation and characterization

    Preparation:

    Preparation of graphene will be done by method provided by Yu et al. [1]. The procedure and quality of graphene prepared by this method is shown in figure below [2].

    Oxidized Graphene Preparation :Chemical Path to Graphene

    Preparation:

    Preparation of oxidized graphene will be done by Hummers method [1]. Hydrazine vapors would be used for reducing the oxidized graphene to graphene.

    Substrates:

    Substrates used would be Si/SiO2 and Si:H / Si:OM,OM : Organic Molecules

    Motivation:

    To study the role of interface states in sensing applications,

    Effect of substrate on the chemically prepared graphene sheets on sensor applications

    Our Proposal

    • Graphene being a one atom thick sheet comes in direct contact with substrate, thus interface state should play important role in sensing. We propose to study the effect of different substrates.

    • We propose that suspended graphene sheet will be more efficient for certain (though not all) gas atom adsorption, as in suspended graphene, both the sides of the aromatic C-sheet will be exposed to the gas(es).

    • Both types of sensors will be compared to evaluate the selective sensing properties.

    • We propose to fabricate identical sensor devices using bilayer supported and suspended graphene as the noise level in BLG is known to be much smaller than that in SLG (IBM reported)

    • Establishing experimentally, whether the sensing is due to the body dominated or it is contact dominated or induced by the graphene-substrate interfacial defects. For the first, we cover the contacts with some insulator to avoid molecular adsorption. For the second one, we cover large part of the graphene sheet (except the contacts) using PMMA or any other insulating polymer layer

    • Metal nano-particles (Pt, Pd) embedded graphene sheets will be used for hydrogen sensing.

    Device Fabrication

    • Motivation for graphene sensors: Increased sensitivity to ultimate limit to detect even single dopant

    • The ultimate limit of detectable S/N ratio at RT in graphene is due to

    • Being 2D, whole volume is exposed to surface adsorbates

    • Highly conductive, so having low Johnson noise even with no charge carriers, so a few carriers cause notable change in signal

    • Can be made defect free sheet, thereby a low level of excess (1/f) noise caused by their thermal switching

    • Four-probe measurements possible over a single sheet, with low resistant ohmic contact

    Device Fabrication

    • Procedure

    • SLG size: 10m x 10m on Si/SiO2(300nm)

    • Au/Ti, Au/Cr electrical contacts using EBL

    • Multi-terminal Hall bar to be defined (by etching graphene in O2 plasma)

    • Gas / Vapor detection:

    • NO2, NH3, H2O, CO, O2, Iodine, Ethanol, H2

    • An Ar/H2 cleaning procedure (high temp cleaning in a reducing atmosphere – sample cleaned by heating in flowing H2/Ar 850sccm Ar, 950sccm H2, 400C, 1hr) for removing polymer contaminations on graphene surface left during lithographic processing. PR and other contaminants can greatly reduce the sensing

    • Vapor response measurements

    Device Characterization

    Mechanism:

    Adsorbgases changes the resistivity/conductivity of the graphene layer making it a gas sensitive resistor. Desorptionof adsorb gases bring graphene to its natural state thus recovering the sensor.

    Changes in the longitudinal (normal) resistance upon gas adsorption

    The Hall effect in graphene-based device shows strong sensitivity of the Hall resistivity xy to the charge carrier density (n or p), making it promising feature for sensor applications.

    Variation in Vg can manipulate the carrier type,

    the charge carrier density, and switching from one

    conduction regime to other

    Conclusions

    • Graphene will be prepared using chemical segregation on Ni and by chemical functionalization of graphite

    • Supported and suspended electronic and mass sensors will be prepared on single layer graphene (SLG) and bilayer graphene (BLG).

    • Effect of substrates on graphene sensor will be studied.

    • Combined, electronic and mass sensor will be developed.
