A: PMMA is used as a protective layer, and this layer can be removed using organic solvents (acetone and IPA) or with thermal treatment. Our standard process is to remove the PMMA with solvents. As an alternative a thermal treatment can be done. This thermal treatment leaves less amount of residues, but the Raman spectra is modified due to the strain created during the treatment. Although the electrical properties of the graphene remain intact thermal treatment is avoided for not modifying Raman signal.
A: Graphene is transferred via wet process. In order to etch the copper, the graphene is protected with a sacrificial polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) layer. A ferric chloride solution is used for etching. Once the etching is complete, the graphene is washed and transferred onto the desired substrate. Finally, the PMMA layer is removed using organic solvents.
A: The thickness is up to 200 nm but typically we use thinner PMMA
