    Experimental results of the direct deposition of graphene films on gallium nitride (GaN)/sapphire substrates by catalyst-free, atmospheric pressure CVD are presented. The quality and thickness of the synthesized samples can be controlled by the growth conditions. In the Raman mappings are reported. The measured optical transparency and electrical transport show promising potential for the application of graphene/GaN compounds in microelectronics and optoelectronics.

  2. Preparation of Few Layer Three-dimensional Graphene Networks by CVD for Energy Storage Applications (pages 14–22)

    Three-dimensional graphene networks (3DGNs) with controllable thicknesses are deposited by atmospheric pressure CVD with nickel form rod as a template. The 3DGNs-assisted energy storage device shows high performance, including high specific capacitance, large energy density, long cycle life, and great stability.

    The one-pot synthesis, characterization, and thermal properties of (nbd)PtMe2 (1) and four new, air-stable, halogen-free, norbornadienyl platinum derivatives (R-nbd)PtMe2, R = 7-Me (2), 7-Et (3), 7-iPr (4), and 2-Et (5) are presented. The complexes 1 and 5 are shown to be highly suitable for the low-temperature, liquid delivery CVD of pure platinum thin films.

  4. The ALD-MLD Growth of a ZnO-Zincone Heterostructure

    Devika Choudhury and Shaibal K. Sarkar

    Article first published online: 24 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cvde.201307092

    A combination of atomic layer deposition and molecular layer deposition is used for the growth of a mixed inorganic/organic multilayer film of zinc oxide and zincone. Full characterization of the deposited multilayer film is presented, and various tunable properties of the material are studied. The formation of ZnO nanosheets on selective etching of the organic layer is achieved.

  5. Preserving Particle Characteristics at Increasing Production Rate of ZnO Nanoparticles by Chemical Vapor Synthesis

    Carolin Schilling and Markus Winterer

    Article first published online: 24 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cvde.201307094

    ZnO nanoparticles are synthesized by chemical vapor synthesis (CVS) via different possible routes to increase the production rate, namely by increasing the total pressure, the precursor concentration, the reactor diameter, and alternatively by parallelization through the use of parallel reactors. The influence on the particle characteristics are investigated. It is found that only the use of parallel tubes allows the increase of the production rate while preserving particle characteristics.
