Low Temperature Growth of Highly Nitrogen-Doped Single Crystal Graphene Arrays by Chemical Vapor Deposition.
Summary of "Low Temperature Growth of Highly Nitrogen-Doped Single Crystal Graphene Arrays by Chemical Vapor Deposition."
The ability to dope graphene is highly important for modulating electrical properties of graphene. However, the current route for the synthesis of N-doped graphene by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method mainly involves high growth temperature using ammonia gas or solid reagent melamine as nitrogen sources, leading to graphene with low doping level, polycrystalline nature, high defect density and low carrier mobility. Here we demonstrate a self-assembly approach that allows the synthesis of single-layer, single-crystal and highly nitrogen-doped graphene flake arrays by self-organization of pyridine molecules on Cu surface at temperature as low as 300 C. These N-doped graphene flakes have dominated geometric structure of tetragonal-shaped, reflecting the single-crystal nature confirmed by electron-diffraction measurements. The electrical measurements of these graphene showed their high carrier mobility, high doping level and reliable N-doped behavior in both air and vacuum.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.
Nitrogen oxide (NO2). A highly poisonous gas. Exposure produces inflammation of lungs that may only cause slight pain or pass unnoticed, but resulting edema several days later may cause death. (From Merck, 11th ed) It is a major atmospheric pollutant that is able to absorb UV light that does not reach the earth's surface.
A central nervous system stimulant and sympathomimetic with actions and uses similar to DEXTROAMPHETAMINE. The smokable form is a drug of abuse and is referred to as crank, crystal, crystal meth, ice, and speed.
Fibroblast Growth Factors
A family of small polypeptide growth factors that share several common features including a strong affinity for HEPARIN, and a central barrel-shaped core region of 140 amino acids that is highly homologous between family members. Although originally studied as proteins that stimulate the growth of fibroblasts this distinction is no longer a requirement for membership in the fibroblast growth factor family.
Fibroblast Growth Factor 1
A 17-kDa single-chain polypeptide growth factor that plays a significant role in the process of WOUND HEALING and is a potent inducer of PHYSIOLOGIC ANGIOGENESIS. It binds to HEPARIN, which potentiates its biological activity and protects it from proteolysis. The growth factor is an extremely potent inducer of DNA synthesis in a variety of cell types from mesoderm and neuroectoderm lineages, and also has chemotactic and mitogenic activities. It was originally named acidic fibroblast growth factor based upon its chemical properties and to distinguish it from basic fibroblast growth factor (FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2).
