Among the many extraordinary qualities of graphene, its thermoelectric properties have attracted significant interest, for example, in active cooling applications. Here, we report on the thermoelectric transport properties of centimeter-sized monolayer CVD graphene, electrostatically controlled by a high-capacity ionic gel. The power factor reaches 7 and 5.4 mW m–1 K–2 for hole and electron conduction, respectively, similar to earlier reports obtained for microdevices despite our devices being over 2 orders of magnitude larger. On the basis of these results, we propose nonvolatile ferroelectric polarization as a scalable technology for graphene-based thermoelectric applications.
