Qing Guo: Fabricating high-mobility graphene/LaAlO3/SrTiO3 nanostructures

Nano-engineered graphene devices can exhibit novel and useful electronic and optical properties, many of which depend critically on controlling the chemical potential relative to the charge-neutrality point. Complex-oxide heterostructures enable reconfigurable control of conductive nanostructures, making them an interesting platform for controlling the electronic properties of graphene at nanoscale dimensions. Here we report the fabrication of graphene/LaAlO3/SrTiO3 heterostructures with nanoscale programmable control of the charge-neutrality point. Magnetotransport measurements of superlattice structures show characteristic interference features that can be associated with the electronically patterned interface. We discuss possible new directions based on this highly versatile hybrid platform.
