Abstract

original image

A transfer printing process that allows precise patterning of chemically converted graphene is reported. The use of a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) stamp and surface energy manipulation resulted in successfully transferring spin-coated materials from one substrate to another. The method is capable of transferring sharp features to precise locations. This represents large-scale, high-throughput transfer printing of chemically converted graphene and paves the way for future complementary circuit design.
