Properties of graphene-metal contacts probed by Raman spectroscopy

Abstract : The high intrinsic carrier mobility of graphene has drawn much attention. However, the high contact resistance between the graphene and metal electrode limits the application of high-speed graphene-based transistors. In this work, we combined both electrical characterization and Raman spectroscopy to study the contact resistance issue in graphene field effect transistor (FET). As FET size scaling down, the graphene-metal contact resistance is found to be a significant contributor to the total resistance. The signature of the graphene/metal bonding with various metal electrodes is probed by using high-resolution Raman spectroscopy. Graphene-metal Raman signals vary on different metal electrodes. This study unearths the properties of the graphene/metal bonding, and paves a way for the investigations into improving the stability and scalability of the graphene-based transistor for future high-speed nanoelectronics.
