Molecular Arrangement and Charge Transfer in C60/Graphene Heterostructures

Scientific Achievement

Charge transfer between C60 and graphene is sensitive to the nature of the underlying supporting substrate and to the crystallinity and local orientation of the C60

Significance and Impact

High electron and hole mobilities are preserved in graphene with crystalline C60 overlayers, which has ramifications for organic high-mobility field-effect devices.
