Abstract

image

Fabrication of graphene nanoribbon arrays by substrate-controlled cutting of graphene during metal-assisted etching is demonstrated by Hiroki Ago and co-workers on page 6562. The proposed method allows for large-area production of highly dense arrays of aligned nanoribbons from a single graphene film. This is expected to facilitate the large-scale integration of graphene nanoribbons into electronic device applications. The image conceptually illustrates the cutting process of the graphene by the metal nanoparticles.
