Over the past few years, the amazing properties of graphene have led to predictions for its use in a variety of areas, not the least of which is in semiconductor devices. However, it appears that graphene is dominated by short-range potential scattering which can arise from intrinsic defects which limit the mobility to relatively low values, well below those predicted based upon its intrinsic band structure. Here, we examine the mobility in graphene on BN, SiC, and SiO2 when it is dominated by these defects.
