We have successfully grown graphene film on the surface of cylindrical copper conductors by Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD). The quality and number of graphene layers have been investigated using Raman spectroscopy, Raman mapping and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), as a function of methane gas flow rate and of the growth temperature. Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) analysis have been performed to verify the number of graphene layers confirming the results obtained by Raman. The results open up the possibility of using graphene as anticorrosion coating for copper cables and earth grids.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
