24 September 2013 The effect of fluid mechanics on graphene growths by chemical vapor deposition

Graphene’s unique mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties have made it a very attractive material desired for use in future technologies. Over the recent years, there have been many breakthroughs in research on graphene. Recently, the focus of the latest research has shifted towards scaling graphene production for commercial use by industry. The most promising method for scaling graphene growth for industry usage is chemical vapor deposition (CVD). CVD is a low cost, economic and scalable method for producing graphene. However, consistently producing high quality graphene quickly on a large scale has eluded researchers. Here we detail a method for reducing growth time required to produce high quality, large area graphene by adjusting the fluid mechanics of the CVD.
