We investigated the radio-frequency transmission properties of reduced graphene oxide (GO) sheets including contact effects with the metal electrodes. GO sheets were prepared by dielectrophoresis and their structural characteristics were analyzed by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy. The contact resistance was much higher than the intrinsic resistance over the entire frequency range, thus the contact resistance was considered as a dominant component of impedance in the radio-frequency regime. In the radio-frequency regime, GO sheets showed a drastic decrease in impedance based on a consistent decrease in the intrinsic and contact resistance. These results support the potential of GO as a radio-frequency interconnector with a solution-based fabrication method.
