Abstract

Fluorescence Quenching Microscopy has been shown to be an effective means of characterizing graphene on the macroscale. Centimeter-scale CVD-grown pristine and doped graphene were manufactured in a high temperature (1000°C) furnace on pristine copper substrates. The copper was then etched away in a FeCl3solution and the graphene was coated with DCM-based fluorescent dye before being imaged in a fluorescence microscope. The fluorescence image was then image-processed using modified Matlab software. The resulting image showed clear contrast between the pristine graphene sheet and defects on the graphene surface, which revealed that fluorescence microscopy could determine the quality of a large region of graphene. Also, significant contrast was identified between single-layer and multi-layer regions, showing that this technique is also effective at determining the degree of uniformity within a graphene sample. Lastly, the fluorescence images showed contrast between doped and undoped regions of graphene.
