abstract :

In the recent years, graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) have been particularly prominent due to their remarkable structural and electronic properties [1]. From technological standpoint, the quasi one-dimensional nature of GNRs presents numerous advantages over the widely known two-dimensional graphene layers [2]. However, the implementation of GNRs in electronic devices relies on the ability to produce GNRs with well-defined atomic structure. Among the several existing methods used to produce GNRs, the bottom-up is the only technique offering a high-level of precision [3]. Usually, in this approach, specially designed precursor monomers are deposited on the metal surface and thermally activated to form GNRs as a result of the consecutive on-surface reactions [3].
In this presentation, I will make a general introduction of the topic. Then, based on scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and X-ray spectroscopy results [4,5], I will demonstrate how the chemical properties of metallic substrates affect the growth and the electronic structure of GNRs. In the last part of my talk, I will present the recent progresses made in the technical development of our new experimental setup for pump-probe experiments [6], and explain the interest to perform pump-probe time- and angle-resolved photoemission (TR-ARPES) on GNRs.
