Structural Properties of Thin Films of Phenacenes — •Jan Hagenlocher1, Alexander Hinderhofer1, Kera Satoshi2, and Frank Schreiber1 — 1Eberhard Karls Universität, Tübingen — 2Institute for Molecular Science, Okazaki, Japan
We studied the structural properties of the high band gap organic semiconductors Picene, Phenacene and Phenacene which exhibit high conductivity. X-ray reflectivity, grazing incidence X-ray diffraction and atomic force microscopy were applied to study the influence of a small length difference between the molecules on the crystallographic structure and morphology of the resulting mixed thin film. The compounds employed are well suited since they consist of different numbers of benzene rings fused together in a zig-zag pattern and differ only in length. It was found that the crystallographic structure remains unchanged upon mixing but the wetting behaviour, the morphology and especially the films roughness changes significantly. Different explanations are discussed and further explored using real-time X-ray reflectivity and analysis of terrace coverage of individual islands. Additionally, the optical properties of the thin films were investigated with UV-Vis spectroscopy.
