Epitaxial graphene on Si (GOS) using a heteroepitaxy of 3C-SiC/Si has attracted recent attention owing to its capability to fuse graphene with Si-based electronics. We demonstrate that the stacking, interface structure, and hence, electronic properties of GOS can be controlled by tuning the surface termination of 3C-SiC(111)/Si, with a proper choice of Si substrate and SiC growth conditions. On the Si-terminated 3C-SiC(111)/Si(111) surface, GOS is Bernal-stacked with a band splitting, while on the C-terminated 3C-SiC(111)/Si(110) surface, GOS is turbostratically stacked without a band splitting. This work enables us to precisely control the electronic properties of GOS for forthcoming devices.
