Graphene - one atom thick plane of graphite - has great nature. The transport of high speed carriers with less scattering in graphene has potential to overcome the limit in current Si-based LSI devices as predicted from Moore’s Law. Moreover, using its ideal 2-D plane atomic structure, graphene can be applied as a giant polyaromatic platform for new method in chemical synthesis. Likewise these fascinating properties of graphene, growth technologies have to be established in the selective or large-scale without defects. This workshop will provide to reaffirm on recent research progress of Japan in graphene with world-leading researchers from physics and chemistry's point of view, and to discuss on graphene growth and characterization toward feasible applications.
