Forming Weakly Interacting Multilayers of Graphene Using Atomic Force Microscope Tip Scanning and Evidence of Competition between Inner and Outer Raman Scattering Processes Piloted by Structural Defects

Abstract : We report on an alternative route based on nanomechanical folding induced by an AFM tip to obtain weakly interacting multilayer graphene (wi-MLG) from a chemical vapor deposition (CVD)-grown single-layer graphene (SLG). The tip first cuts and then pushes and folds graphene during zigzag movements. The pushed graphene has been analyzed using various Raman microscopy plotsA D /A G × E L 4 vs Γ G , ω 2D vs Γ 2D , Γ 2D vs Γ G , ω 2D+/− vs Γ 2D+/− , and A 2D− /A 2D+ vs A 2D /A G. We show that the SLG in-plane properties are maintained under the folding process and that a few tens of graphene layers are stacked, with a limited number of structural defects. A blue shift of about 20 cm − 1 of the 2D band is observed. The relative intensity of the 2D − and 2D + bands have been related to structural defects, giving evidence of their role in the inner and outer processes at play close to the Dirac cone.
