Graphene has attracted significant attention in recent years. In additional to the mechanical cleavage of graphite, many methods have been developed to prepare graphene. Among them, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) opens a possibility for a wide range of applications of graphene in electronics. Graphene films with monolayer or few-layer coverage have been synthesized on many metals, e.g., Ni, Cu, Fe and Co, via a CVD process. However, the complicated transfer techniques for metal-catalyzed graphene or the high cost of the single crystal SiC substrates limit the wide application of these graphene in nanoelectronics.

In this presentation[1?11], I will report our recent results by using a modified CVD approach to produce high quality graphene by virtue of solid Cu and liquid Cu as catalysts, or directly on dielectric subutrates. Moreover, the synthesis of highly N-doped tetragonal-shaped single crystal graphene arrays will be also reported. In addition, the electronic devices based on these graphenes were fabricated and investigated.
