For organic molecular materials the definition of the condition of epitaxial growth has been subjected to several misconceptions and a great debate, leading in any case to less restrictive requirements than for inorganic materials. Here, the deposition of oligothiophene films by molecular beam epitaxy on properly grown organic single crystals is discussed and all-organic rigorous epitaxy demonstrated for both sub-monolayer and several-monolayer thick films. The possibility of growing all-organic nanostructures directly follows from these results. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Abstract

For organic molecular materials the definition of the condition of epitaxial growth has been subjected to several misconceptions and a great debate, leading in any case to less restrictive requirements than for inorganic materials. Here, the deposition of oligothiophene films by molecular beam epitaxy on properly grown organic single crystals is discussed and all-organic rigorous epitaxy demonstrated for both sub-monolayer and several-monolayer thick films. The possibility of growing all-organic nanostructures directly follows from these results. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
