We investigate charge transport in high-quality epitaxial graphene on SiC (0001). In the first part of my talk, I will present charge transport in large-area graphene. Whereas the magnetoresistance in monolayer graphene is fully understood [1], bilayer graphene displays a strong linear magnetoresistance that origins from stacking fault networks [2]. In the second part of my talk, I will present how graphene can be chemically doped by intercalation such that n-type and p-type graphene are interconnected on the same chip. This can be used for unconventional devices, allowing for digital electronics [3] that operates up to 400°C, THz polarizers, ultra-low capacitance diodes etc. Finally, single-molecule junctions using graphene electrode pairs will be presented.
