Abstract

In this study, we have realized controllable fabrication of gold nanopatterns on pristine monolayer graphene by using nanosphere lithography, in which polystyrene (PS) spheres are used as templates. With this method, periodically ordered triangular Au nanopatterns are uniformly formed on graphene surface. Micro-Raman spectroscopy shows that these sacrificial PS templates have no obvious effect on graphene surface structure while the subsequently formed Au nanopatterns are found to enhance Raman intensity of G and 2D bands by surface plasmon resonance. The compressive stress introduced in the metal deposition process leads to an obvious blue shift of 2D band. Besides, the metal-induced doping effect reduces the intensity ratio between 2D and G bands. This uniform arrangement of metal nanostructure is expected to grow other nanomaterials or used as Raman enhancement substrate in biomedicine, catalyzer and optics areas.
