Abstract: Graphene is a unique material with extraordinary properties, in both its mechanical structure and strength as well as its superb electronic transport. It has become an important focus of physical and chemical research, and many practical applications that take advantage of its properties have been found as well. Since graphene is a single atomic layer all charge carriers involved in conduction through it are always in contact with the surface. Thus, surface effects are expected to play a very important role in determining the characteristics of a sheet of graphene. In this project, graphene nanoelectronic devices are fabricated, and the effects on their transport properties of depositing minute amounts of gold onto their surfaces are investigated.
