  1. 1. Functionalized Graphene as Superlattice and Gas Sensor

    Author : Tianbo Duan; Klaus Leifer; Andrey Turchanin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; graphene; functionalization; gas sensor; superlattice;

    Abstract : Graphene, an atomic-thin carbon sheet with carbon atoms tightly packed honeycomb-like lattice, has attracted enormous interest due to its unique chemical and physical properties. However, the intrinsic zero bandgap characteristic of graphene has so far prevented graphene from building effective electronic and optoelectronic devices. READ MORE
