Scalable growth is essential for graphene-based applications. Recent development has enabled the achievement of the scalability by use of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) at 1000°C with copper as a catalyst and methane as a precursor gas. Here we report our observation of early stage of graphene growth based on an ethylene-based CVD method, capable of reducing the growth temperature to 770°C for monolayer graphene growth on copper. We track the early stages of slow growth under low ethylene flow rate and observe the graphene domain evolution by varying the temperature and growth time. Temperature-dependence of graphene domain density gives an apparent activation energy of 1.0 eV for nucleation.
