© 2017 Author(s). We have investigated the electron band structure of graphene epitaxially grown on an SiC substrate using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. The conical energy spectrum of graphene exhibits a minimum slope at ∼50 K, which is accompanied by the minimum separation between its two branches. These observations provide a viable route towards the engineering of the electronic properties of graphene using temperature, while the latter suggests a possible evidence of gap engineering via strain induced by the substrate and modulated by temperature.
