How to use Optosky Raman spectrometer to quickly identify graphene?
Graphene is an excellent choice for electronic product materials. It is currently the thinnest, hardest, and strongest new type of nanomaterial with the strongest electrical and thermal conductivity. It can be used in aerospace and military high-precision fields.
Graphene is a new material in which carbon atoms connected by sp² hybrids are closely packed into a single-layer two-dimensional honeycomb lattice structure. It has excellent optical, electrical, and mechanical properties, and has important application prospects in materials science, micro-nano processing, energy, biomedicine, and drug delivery. It is considered a revolutionary material in the future.
What are the unique advantages of Raman spectroscopy for graphene detection?
Since the discovery of graphene, Raman spectroscopy has become a most important experimental method in the field of graphene research.
Raman spectroscopy is an important technical means to quickly and losslessly characterize the crystal structure of materials, electronic energy band structure, phonon energy dispersion and electron-phonon coupling.
Raman spectroscopy has unique advantages in the characterization of the number of layers of graphene. The perfect Raman peak is a simple and effective method to determine the single-layer graphene, and the multi-layer graphene is Raman due to the splitting of the electronic band structure. The peak can be fitted as a superposition of multiple Lorentz peaks, and the Raman peak is closely related to the electronic band structure of graphene. Therefore, Raman spectroscopy is an effective method to determine the doping type and doping concentration of graphene.
Raman spectroscopy is based on the whole process of graphene solution measurement
