This presentation will report on the progress made regarding the epitaxial growth of graphene on 6H silicon carbide through carbon dioxide laser ablation.  Alongside the continuing collaboration with nanomaterial specialists at Clemson University and the previous set of results, we have made significant changes to the experimental setup, which are reflected in our current analysis.  The most notable changes include the introduction of a constant argon flow across the substrate and shortened ablation time periods.  These updates will continue to refine our method of producing graphene and approaching our goal of identifying the correlation between ablation time and temperature with the number of graphene layers formed.
