Abstract: The contact resistance between graphene and metal electrodes is crucial for the achievement of high-performance graphene devices. In this study, we review our recent study on the graphene–metal contact characteristics from the following viewpoints: (1) metal preparation method; (2) asymmetric conductance; (3) annealing effect; (4) interfaces impact.
Keywords: graphene; field-effect transistor; contact resistance; Raman
