Synthesis and Modification of Graphene for Catalytic and Plasmonic Applications-Brian Kiraly

Project: Research project

Project Details


(1) Brian Kiraly: Brian is a National Science Foundation Fellow who will explore methods for growing graphene directly on plasmonic metals (e.g., Ag, Au, and Cu) in ultra-high vacuum (UHV). Brian will characterize his graphene materials using UHV scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) Raman spectroscopy, and related surface science techniques. Brian will also study organic and inorganic adsorbates on his plasmonically active graphene substrates with surface-enhance Raman spectroscopy (SERS).
