Quantum Hall effect on centimeter scale chemical vapor deposited graphene films

We report observations of well developed half integer quantum Hall effect on mono layer graphene films of 7 mm × 7 mm in size. The graphene films are grown by chemical vapor deposition on copper, then transferred to SiO2/Si substrates, with typical carrier mobilities ≈4000 cm2/Vs. The large size graphene with excellent quality and electronic homogeneity demonstrated in this work is promising for graphene-based quantum Hall resistance standards and can also facilitate a wide range of experiments on quantum Hall physics of graphene and practical applications exploiting the exceptional properties of graphene.
