AFM Induced Local Oxidation of HOPG

  • Kenichi Uki (a1), Mikihiro Kato (a1), Susumu Harako (a1) and Xinwei Zhao (a1)


AFM induced local anodic oxidation of HOPG was carried out in various conditions such as humidity, applied voltage and scan speed. A clear evidence of different oxidation features between HOPG and graphene has been confirmed and discussed.

These results should contribute to the progress of the micro/nano fabrication of graphene by the local anodic oxidation.
