We report a nonlithographic fabrication method to grow uniform and large-scale crystalline silicon (Si) nanodot (c-SiNDs) arrays on single-layer graphene by an ultrathin anodic porous alumina template and Ni-induced Si crystallization technique. The lateral height of the template can be as thin as 160 nm and the crystallization of Si can be achieved at a low temperature of 400 °C. The effects of c-SiNDs on graphene were studied by Raman spectroscopy. Furthermore, the c-SiNDs/graphene based field effect transistors were demonstrated.
