On-Surface Synthesis, Transfer and Device Fabrication of Novel Carbon-based Nanomaterials

Project description

Paving the way to the next-generation of electronic devices

During the last years, the study of reactions on surfaces have become a versatile tool for fabricating atomically precise carbon-based nanomaterials that cannot be synthesized via conventional chemical methods. The field has witnessed important advances such as the bottom-up synthesis of graphene nanoribbons which open the way for the development of the next-generation of electronic devices. The reaction mechanisms derived from in-solution chemistry are not necessarily transferable to solution-free processes occurring at surfaces. The EU-funded OssCaNa project will study on-surface synthesis of novel carbon-based nanomaterials combining a variety of surface science techniques such as low-temperature scanning probe microscopy/spectroscopy, non-contact atomic force microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The project will also study efficient nanomaterial transfer mechanisms to appropriate non-metallic substrates and test their use in fabricating high-performance electronic devices.
