Patterning of graphene Academic Article uri icon


  • Two-dimensional atomic sheets of carbon (graphene, graphane, etc.) are amenable to unique patterning schemes such as cutting, bending, folding and fusion that are predicted to lead to interesting properties. In this review, we present theoretical understanding and processing routes for patterning graphene and highlight potential applications. With more precise and scalable patterning, the prospects of integrating flat carbon (graphene) with curved carbon (nanotubes and half nanotubes) and programmable graphene folding are envisioned.
