Growth of para-hexaphenyl microrings — •Frank Balzer1 and Horst-Günter Rubahn2 — 1Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Institut für Physik / ASP — 2SDU Odense, Fysisk Institut, Denmark
Recently we have shown, that on freshly cleaved mica the growth of mutually aligned fibers of para-hexaphenyl is favored because of a dipole-assisted self-assembly process . Typical heights and widths of these fibers are in the range of a few ten to hundred nanometers, but lengths up to one millimeter can be obtained. However, altering the mica surface dipoles leads to the growth of para-hexaphenyl microrings instead of parallel fibers. These rings possess a narrow size distribution of a few micrometers in diameter with wall widths and heights of a few hundred nanometers. Polarized two-photon luminescence on single rings reveals that these rings resemble bent single crystalline fibers . Possible applications of the microrings are discussed.
