It is known that low-?eld mobility of graphene depends largely on the substrate material on which it is transferred. We measured Drude optical conductivity of graphene on various substrates and determined the carrier density and carrier scattering rate. The carrier density varies widely depending on the substrate material. However the scattering rate is almost constant, ∼100 cm -1 , for 5 different substrates. We calculate carrier mobility of graphene using the two quantities, i.e., carrier density and scattering rate, to ?nd that it agrees with the mobility measured from dc transport experiment. We conclude that substrate-depent mobility of graphene originates from different carrier density but not from the scattering rate.
