Organic molecular ion beam epitaxy of non-volatile molecules — •Gordon Rinke1, Stephan Rauschenbach1, and Klaus Kern1,2 — 1Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany — 2Institut de Physique de la Matiere Condensee, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland
Electrospray ion beam deposition (ES-IBD) was developed in our laboratory as a technique for the deposition of non-volatile molecules on well-defined surfaces in ultrahigh vacuum.[1, 2] ES-IBD is based on the creation of intact molecular ions or clusters by electrospray ionization, which are deposited on a surface as a mass selected hyperthermal beam. In contrast to evaporation, where neutral thermal particle beams are used, ES-IBD allows for the full control of the deposition process.
Here we show several examples of crystalline film growth using ES-IBD. Organic thin films are grown in layers or islands from high flux cluster beams. Many other non-volatile molecules, including highly reactive species, form two-dimensional crystals on metal surfaces.
Our results show that, despite the significant differences, ES-IBD can achieve results equivalent to conventional epitaxy. The versatility and enhanced control of the deposition process shows a way towards novel coatings with unique properties.
