Frequently Asked Questions
A: Graphene is transferred via a wet transfer process. Before etching the copper away, the graphene is protected with a sacrificial polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) layer. A ferric chloride solution is then used for Cu etching. Once the etching is complete, the graphene is washed and transferred onto the desired substrate. Finally, the PMMA layer is removed.
A: The PMMA can be removed using organic solvents or thermal treatment. Our standard process removes the PMMA with solvents. Using acetone and IPA baths, the sample is submerged for 30min in each one, then dried with a N2 gun. Use of an ultrasonic bath should be avoided in order to prevent detachment of the graphene film.
Thermal treatment up to 450ºC in inert atmosphere leaves fewer residues. In this case the Raman spectrum is modified due to some strain induced during the treatment and polymer polymerization. However, the electrical properties of the graphene remain intact.
A: The thickness is around 60nm.
