This work presents an experimental characterization of electrochemically gated graphene field-effect transistors (EGFETs) to measure extracellular cell signals. The performance of the EGFETs was evaluated using cardiomyocytes cells. Extracellular signals with a peak value of 0.4 pico-amperes (pA) embedded in a noise level of 0.1 pA were recorded. Signals in current mode were compared with signals recorded as a voltage. Signals below 28 µV of magnitude can be detected in a noise floor of 7 µV with a signal-to-noise ratio of 4.

This paper provides an overview on graphene solution-gated field-effect transistors (SGFETs) and their applications in bioelectronics. The fabrication and characterization of arrays of graphene SGFETs is presented and discussed with respect to competing technologies. To obtain a better understanding of the working principle of solution-gated transistors, the graphene-electrolyte interface is discussed in detail. The in vitro biocompatibility of graphene is assessed by primary neuron cultures. Fi...

Graphene-metal contact resistance limits the performance of graphene-based electrical devices. In this work, we have fabricated both graphene field-effect transistors (GFET) and transfer length measurement (TLM) test devices with titanium contacts. The purpose of this work is to compare the contact resistances that can be numerically extracted from the GFETs and measured from the TLM structures. We also provide a brief review of the work done in the field to solve the contact resistance problem....

The synthesis of wafer-scale single crystal graphene remains a challenge toward the utilization of its intrinsic properties in electronics. Until now, the large-area chemical vapor deposition of graphene has yielded a polycrystalline material, where grain boundaries are detrimental to its electrical properties. Here, we study the physicochemical mechanisms underlying the nucleation and growth kinetics of graphene on copper, providing new insights necessary for the engineering synthesis of wafer-...

By interfacing the quantum mechanical properties of nanomaterials with the complex processes in biology, several bio/nano systems have evolved with applications in biosensors, cellular devices, drug delivery, and biophotoluminescence. One recent breakthrough has been the application of graphene, a two-dimensional (2-D) sheet of sp2 hybridized carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice, as a sensitive platform for interfacing with biological cells to detect intra- and extracellular phenomena, i...

Grain boundaries, the characteristic topological defects of chemical vapor deposition grown graphene samples, are expected to substantially alter the electronic properties of the unperturbed graphene lattice. However, there is very little experimental insight into the underlying mechanisms. Here, we systematically map the electronic properties of individual graphene grain boundaries by scanning tunneling microscopy and spatially resolved tunneling spectroscopy measurements. The tunneling spectro...

We report direct mapping of the grains and grain boundaries (GBs) of large-area monolayer polycrystalline graphene sheets, at large (several micrometer) and single-atom length scales. Global grain and GB mapping is performed using electron diffraction in scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) or using dark-field imaging in conventional TEM. Additionally, we employ aberration-corrected TEM to extract direct images of the local atomic arrangements of graphene GBs, which reveal the altern...

The discovery of uniform deposition of high-quality single layered graphene on copper has generated significant interest. That interest has been translated into rapid progress in terms of large area deposition of thin films via transfer onto plastic and glass substrates. The opto-electronic properties of the graphene thin films reveal that they are of very high quality with transmittance and conductance values of >90% and 30Ω/sq, both are comparable to the current state-of-the-art indium tin oxi...

We report the implementation of continuous, highly flexible, and transparent graphene films obtained by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) as transparent conductive electrodes (TCE) in organic photovoltaic cells. Graphene films were synthesized by CVD, transferred to transparent substrates, and evaluated in organic solar cell heterojunctions (TCE/poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene:poly styrenesulfonate (PEDOT:PSS)/copper phthalocyanine/fullerene/bathocuproine/aluminum). Key to our success is the conti...

We report an experimental study of 1/f noise in liquid-gated graphene transistors. We show that the gate dependence of the noise is well described by a charge-noise model, whereas Hooge’s empirical relation fails to describe the data. At low carrier density, the noise can be attributed to fluctuating charges in close proximity to the graphene, while at high carrier density it is consistent with noise due to scattering in the channel. The charge noise power scales inversely with the device area, ...
