Abstract [en]

Epitaxial graphene on silicon carbide is a promising material for the next generation of quantum Hall resistance standards. Single Hall bars made of graphene have already surpassed their state-of-the-art GaAs based counterparts as an R-K/2 (RK = h/e(2)) standard, showing at least the same precision and higher breakdown current density. Compared to single devices, quantum Hall arrays using parallel or series connection of multiple Hall bars can offer resistance values spanning several orders of magnitude and (in case of parallel connection) significantly larger measurement currents, but impose strict requirements on uniformity of the material. To evaluate the quality of the available material, we have fabricated arrays of 100 Hall bars connected in parallel on epitaxial graphene. One out of four devices has shown quantized resistance that matched the correct value of R-K/200 within the measurement precision of 10(-4) at magnetic fields between 7 and 9 T. The defective behaviour of other arrays is attributed mainly to non-uniform doping. This result confirms the acceptable quality of epitaxial graphene, pointing towards the feasibility of well above 90% yield of working Hall bars.
