Varied Moiré patterns of graphene/Rh(111) measured by scanning tunnelling microscopy — •Tobias Euwens, Anne Holtsch, Hussein Schanak, and Uwe Hartmann — Institute of Experimental Physics, Saarland University, P.O. Box 151150, D-66041 Saarbrücken

Scanning tunnelling microscopy measurements on graphene deposited on a Rh(111) surface are conducted to investigate the superstructures that originate from the different lattice parameters of the graphene and the substrate. Different kinds of superstructures, also called Moiré patterns, can be seen in the resulting images. Their origin lies in either the surface inhomogenities of the Rh(111) substrate or in the form of folds and steps in the graphene itself. Knowing the properties of the growth of graphene on the rhodium surface is important for the construction of more complex graphene-based electronics. Understanding the specific structure of the Moiré patterns can help in that regard as it relays information about the angle between the carbon and the rhodium lattice and potential reasons for the twisting between the two lattices.
