Abstract— An Omicron low temperature multi-probe technique is used for manipulation of mechanically exfoliated suspended and attached graphene sheets on SiO2 substrates. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Raman spectroscopy are used to detect the graphene sheets and determine their thicknesses and quality, respectively. The interaction of the etched tungsten tip with the graphene is used to lift and release the sheet and induce artificial ripples. Both suspended and attached sheets onto the substrates show different behaviour in response to bias voltage.
