Abstract
Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) with widths of a few nanometers are promising candidates for future nanoelectronic applications due to their structurally tunable bandgaps, ultrahigh carrier mobilities, and exceptional stability. However, the direct growth of micrometer-long GNRs on insulating substrates, which is essential for the fabrication of nanoelectronic devices, remains an immense challenge. Here, the epitaxial growth of GNRs on an insulating hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) substrate through nanoparticle-catalyzed chemical vapor deposition is reported. Ultranarrow GNRs with lengths of up to 10 mu m are synthesized. Remarkably, the as-grown GNRs are crystallographically aligned with the h-BN substrate, forming 1D moire superlattices. Scanning tunneling microscopy reveals an average width of 2 nm and a typical bandgap of approximate to 1 eV for similar GNRs grown on conducting graphite substrates. Fully atomistic computational simulations support the experimental results and reveal a competition between the formation of GNRs and carbon nanotubes during the nucleation stage, and van der Waals sliding of the GNRs on the h-BN substrate throughout the growth stage. This study provides a scalable, single-step method for growing micrometer-long narrow GNRs on insulating substrates, thus opening a route to explore the performance of high-quality GNR devices and the fundamental physics of 1D moire superlattices.
