As an atomic layer of graphite, graphene has ultrahigh optical transparency and superior electron mobility. We plan to develop graphene transparent conductive electrodes (TCE) for applications in high density focal plane assemblies. The challenge is producing graphene TCE with high optical transparency, and meantime, low sheet resistance. Large area graphene is required for high density focal plane assemblies.
Graphene thin films will be fabricated using Low Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition (LPCVD), Films will be selected and doped to reduce sheet resistance. The films will be patterned with electrical contacts in an array format. Optical transparency and electrical conductivity of the films will be characterized.More »
