Electron transport in graphene is often crucially influenced by the underlying substrate which induces scattering mechanisms on a local scale. Using scanning tunneling potentiometry we investigate the transport properties of graphene on 6H-silicon carbide (0001) grown by polymer-assisted sublimation growth (PASG) down to the nanometer scale. We find a significant variation in the sheet resistance of up to 195% on neighboring terraces directly related to the stacking of the 6H-SiC substrate. Thus, our data clearly shows the strong influence of the substrate below the graphene layer on its local transport properties. In addition, we performed temperature dependent measurements to gain insight into the dominant scattering mechanism. This work is financially supported by the DFG through the SFB1073.
