Graphene is a promising material for its exceptional electrical and mechanical properties. Starting with the initial demonstration of isolating a single graphene sheet from graphite, much progress has been made in realizing graphene based devices for diverse applications. Here, we introduce an experiment in which the electrical properties of graphene are modified by coating different-sequence single-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (ssDNA) molecules. We fabricated a graphene-field effect transistor (FET) by transferring CVD graphene on copper foil onto a Si/SiO2 wafer. A passivation layer opened up windows on the surface of the graphene to enable interaction with liquid buffers. ssDNA molecules with different base sequences were coated onto the active graphene channels. We observed a variation in the Dirac voltage of the ssDNA-coated graphene FETs according to the ssDNA base sequences. Electrical control of the graphene FET is obtained via gating effect of the deposited ssDNAs. We conduct a systematic study of this ssDNAinduced gating effect with different base sequences, concentrations, and lengths of molecules, leading to extraction of characteristic parameters of the graphene FET accordingly.
