Large-area Si-doped graphene (SiG) is controllably synthesized for the first time. A much-enhanced molecular-sensing performance is achieved when SiG is used as a probing surface. This will open up opportunities for developing high-performance sensors that are able to detect trace amounts of organic and fluorescent molecules. Furthermore, many fascinating properties predicted by theoretical calculations can be tested based on the as-synthesized SiG.
