Graphene Synthesis


graphene is as conductive as steel and even harder to break apart. It is also ferromagnetic, being able to generate electric fields even in high temperatures.

Graphene, a single carbon atom layer constructed in repeated hexagonal lattice structures, has been getting significant attention from the tech industry due to its extraordinary properties followed by an endless possibility for applications.

Despite being well-known for these remarkable properties, there is very limited knowledge on how to synthesize the single layer of carbon.
My research objective was to synthesize graphene using the process of Chemical Vapor Deposition, while exploring in-depth on how different conditions during the process can affect graphene growth on copper.
