|Abstract:||The self-supporting monolayer material which is graphene has excited enormous interest over the ten years since its discovery due to its remarkable electrical, mechanical thermal and chemical properties. In this paper we describe our work to develop chemical vapour deposition methods to grow monolayer graphene on copper foil substrates and the subsequent transfer process. Raman microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy (AFM) are used to examine the quality of the transferred material. To demonstrate the process we describe transfer onto patterned SiO2/Si substrates which forms freely suspended graphene with focus on circular wells forming graphene drums. These show interesting mechanical properties which are being explored as nanomechanical resonators.|
