    Abstract

    A heteroepitaxial system of h-BN/monolayer graphene on Ni(111) has been investigated by means of vibrational spectroscopy, accompanied by low energy electron diffraction (LEED) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES). The system was prepared in an epitaxial manner on a Ni(111) surface by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). We found that phonon peaks in observed spectra showed typical features of Fuchs-Kliewer (FK) phonons. The vibrational spectra of h-BN films ranging in thickness from 0 to 8.7 monolayers have been compared with theoretical spectra based on a dielectric theory. Detailed analysis has revealed new types of phonons, of which the vibrational amplitudes are localized at edges of h-BN nanocrystals. In addition, we have observed subsidence phenomena of the graphene and h-BN layers into Ni substrate at elevated temperatures.
