Topical Section: 2D Materials

We describe a means to produce thin layers of carbon, graphene multilayers, using laser etching followed by exfoliation. Complex macroscopic images can be produced in minutes. The laser need only mark the top-most layers of graphene for the image to become permanent down to the glass substrate. We use the technique to produce artwork for proof of principle results. With refinement the methodology should also enable patterning of novel graphene electronic and optoelectronic devices.
