Graphene based semiconductors could be fabricated by inducing a band gap at the Dirac point in the graphene band structure. According to theoretical investigations perylene-3,4,9,10-tetra-carboxylic-diimide (PTCDI) is a promising organic semiconductor to open up a band gap in graphene by monomolecular physisorption. However the self-assembly of PTCDI monolayers on graphite could only be shown by epitaxial growth in ultra-high vacuum, yet.
Organic Solid/Solid Wetting Deposition (OSWD) is a process which enables the deposition of insoluble molecules such as organic semiconductors on substrate surfaces under ambient conditions. Here we show first results with PTCDI using OSWD, obtained via scanning tunneling microscopy, which are crucial for tuning the band structure of graphene.
