Transfer of graphene from metal catalyst to dielectrics is a complicated procedure which affects the quality of graphene. In the present work, direct growth of graphene was established on strontium titanate (SrTiO3) substrates with the means of chemical vapour deposition (CVD). The graphene growth on catalyst free dielectric substrates were carried out for 3, 4 and 7 h at 1000 degrees C. Raman spectrum showed D, G and 2D peaks of graphene for the samples. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to get an initial measurement about the morphological structure. Energy Dispersive X-ray spectrometer attached with SEM was also used to get information about the composition of carbon content which showed a considerable increase for the CVD grown sample as compare to bare substrate. Atomic force microscope (AFM) images of the samples surface clearly showed multilayer graphene domains of different sizes and height for different growth time. AFM height profile showed an increase in vertical growth with the increase in growth time. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) was used to get further information about the presence of necessary elements like graphene (carbon), its bonding with STO substrates and the shift in position of fermi level of graphene layers. XPS mapping was also done to get information about the non-uniform growth of carbon surface grown on SrTiO3 surface.

Çakmak, Hüseyin; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Turan, Raşit; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2012)
The purpose of this study is to develop a technology for indium (In) rich indium gallium nitride (InGaN) solar cell epitaxial structures through metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) method. InxGa1-xN solar cell structures have potential to cover 90% of the solar spectrum by varying In composition in the active region of the solar cell, where bandgaps of indium nitride (InN) and gallium nitride (GaN) are 0.7 eV and 3.4 eV, respectively. Photovoltaic devices that have a bandgap larger than 2.0 eV g...
Chemical Interactions of Nano Islandic Graphene Grown on Titanium Dioxide Substrates by Chemical Vapor Deposition
Karamat, S.; Khalique, U.; Usman, Arslan; Javaid, Asad; Oral, Ahmet (2022-03-01)
In this work, direct growth of graphene is carried out on TiO2 (110) substrates by chemical vapor deposition. For few device applications, it is convenient to grow graphene directly on the dielectric substrates rather than metal foil to minimize transfer and surface interface defects. Raman spectrum support graphene growth on TiO2 substrate by exhibiting D and G peaks. Graphene covered the whole TiO2 substrate with few areas where higher growth of carbon atoms occurs. The contrast of SEM images clearly show...

The present competition of graphene electronics demands an efficient route which produces high quality and large area graphene. Chemical vapour deposition technique, where hydrocarbons dissociate in to active carbon species and form graphene layer on the desired metal catalyst via nucleation is considered as the most suitable method. In this study, single layer graphene with the presence of few layer single crystal graphene grains were grown on Pt foil via chemical vapour deposition. The higher growth tempe...

Branched gold (Au) nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized directly on surfaces of three different supports (silicon, glass, indium tin oxide (ITO)) by following a "seed-mediated" method. Growth of the nanostructures in high yield and all with branched morphology was achieved on all surfaces. Nanostructures with desired characteristics were synthesized by determining the optimum seed size (8 nm Au nanospheres) and pH (3.00) of the growth solution. The Au NPs synthesized under these conditions have branched mor...
Synthesis and Characterization of Aluminum Containing Silica Aerogel Catalysts for Degradation of PLA
Sivri, Seda; Dilek Hacıhabiboğlu, Çerağ; Sezgi, Naime Aslı (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2019-05-01)
Aluminum loaded silica aerogel based catalysts were synthesized by impregnation of aluminum into silica aerogel produced using sol-gel method in different aluminum loadings (2.5-15 wt%) to investigate their performances in degradation of polylactic acid (PLA).
