Abstract

<p>Graphene's nanostructures such as nanoribbons (GNRs) attract a great interest due to the possible quantum effects and possibility to open a band gap in graphene electronic structure - a condition required for graphene utilization in switching logic electronic devices. It is challenging task to produce GNRs with good control over width and orientation on semiconducting substrate. We developed a method to grow periodic arrays of narrow nonoribbons and 1D structurally modulated graphene layers on large facets (induced by step bunching) of vicinal SiC(0001) surfaces. Here we present observations and analysis of atomic and electronic structures of these nanomaterials by means of scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy.</p>
