Abstract

We report the first demonstration of the growth of giant graphene domains on platinum (Pt), which results in a uniform bilayer graphene film with domain sizes of millimetre scale. These giant graphene domains are attributed to the giant Pt grains attained in post-deposition annealed Pt thin films that exhibit a strong dependency on the Pt film thickness. Giant grains have been claimed to occur in other metallic materials under appropriate film thicknesses and processing conditions. Our findings demonstrate a route towards rational large-scale uniform graphene synthesis for applications in nanoelectronics and sensing.
