Summary:

A novel approach is demonstrated to characterize the charge amplification of mono-layered graphene as an integral part of a Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor Device (CMOS) under RF radiation. We have verified that charge carriers generated on the surface of a graphene structure can be measured indirectly through capacitive coupling between surfaces. With these findings, our aim is to develop a state-of-the-art graphene integrated CMOS RF detector that will excel in space and defense applications.
