AbstractWe investigated the atomic structures, Raman spectroscopic and electrical transport properties of individual graphene nanoribbons (GNRs, widths ~10-30 nm) derived from sonochemical unzipping of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). Aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed a high percentage of two-layer (2L) GNRs and some single layer ribbons. The layer-layer stacking angles ranged from 0o to 30o including average chiral angles near 30o (armchair orientation) or 0o (zigzag orientation). A large fraction of GNRs with bent and smooth edges was observed, while the rest showing flat and less smooth edges (roughness leq 1 nm). Polarized Raman spectroscopy probed individual GNRs to reveal D/G ratios and ratios of D band intensities at parallel and perpendicular laser excitation polarization (D///Dot). The observed spectroscopic trends were used to infer the average chiral angles and edge smoothness of GNRs. Electrical transport and Raman measurements were carried out for individual ribbons to correlate spectroscopic and electrical properties of GNRs.
