Highly Oriented Pyrolytic Graphite (HOPG) Description

HOPG - Highly Oriented Pyrolytic Graphite is the material produced by the application of uniaxial pressure on deposited pyrocarbon at very high temperatures (sometimes more than 3000℃). Depending on deformation, temperature, and annealing time one can get material with different mosaic spreads, amounts of defects, and granular structures (average size of the grains and crystallites). The most suitable HOPG for STM/AFM applications should have large grains and crystallites, a uniform surface with minimal steps (parts of broken carbon planes), and should allow easily cleaving of very thin layers, such that the surface of the sample can be refreshed many times for investigations.
