In this study, we investigate a new technique to fabricate DNA-CTMA films with tunable properties. MAPLE is, for the first time, explored to deposit DNA-CTMA dielectric films on top of epitaxially grown graphene on silicon carbide (SiC) substrate. Silicon dioxide (SiO2) is commonly used as a gate insulator in graphene based field effect transistors (GFETs) in a top gate configuration. The high temperature deposition of SiO2 on graphene is known to cause damage to the surface of the graphene leading to poor device operation. We propose an alternative gate insulator based on a bio-organic (DNA-CTMA) material processed and deposited at room temperature (RT) using MAPLE. Hall measurements run before and after DNA-CTMA deposition showed no change in the type of conductivity as well as charge carrier mobility.
