STM Imaging of PTCDA Multilayers with Submolecular Resolution — •Daniel Braun, Andre Schirmeisen, and Harald Fuchs — Physikalisches Institut and CeNTech, University of Muenster, Wilhelm-Klemm Str. 10, 48149 Muenster, Germany

Organic semiconductors have attracted intensive research interest over the last decade, ever since the demonstration of a low-voltage-powered OLED [1]. Charge transport and luminescence properties are governed by the structural properties of the thin films, like molecular aggregation, packing and orientation [2]. Understanding and tuning the epitaxy of large aromatic adsorbates by molecular design is a task, which has attracted much attention in the last years [3].

We investigate the growth of the archetype molecular compound PTCDA, a semiconducting organic molecule, using UHV-STM. On the thin multilayer films we observe submolecular features of the PTCDA not only from the top-layer but also from the next layer, allowing us to study directly the quasi-epitaxial growth.
