Proximity doping effects in epitaxial graphene: substrate, growth and postgrowth treatment (S2)

Project description

This proposal is part of the DFG research unit FOR5242 "Proximity-induced correlation effects in low dimensional systems”. In this project we use our large-area, ultra-smooth epitaxial graphene as a basis to investigate proximity doping effects which are caused by facet related stacking order induced doping of the SiC substrate below and post-growth molecular doping above the 2-dimensional graphene layer. The goal is the highest possible control of the carrier density and by this giving access to fundamental effects in quantum transport experiments close to the charge neutrality point.
