We investigate the effects of transition metals (TM) on the electronic doping and scattering in graphene using molecular-beam epitaxy combined with in situ transport measurements. The room-temperature deposition of TM onto graphene produces clusters that dope n type for all TM investigated (Ti, Fe, and Pt). We also find that the scattering by TM clusters exhibits different behavior compared to 1/r Coulomb scattering. At high coverage, Pt films are able to produce doping that is either n type or weakly p type, which provides experimental evidence for a strong interfacial dipole favoring n -type doping as predicted theoretically. © 2009 The American Physical Society.
