The development of a thin film technology based on the outstanding organic semiconductor rubrene is seriously prevented by its tendency to solidify in an amorphous state when deposited on foreign substrates. Here, a crystalline thin film of rubrene was successfully grown by vapor deposition on the surface of a tetracene single crystal. Atomic resolution imaging performed with scanning force microscopy revealed the high crystallinity of the film and its unique orientation achieved through a line-on-line epitaxial relation.

Abstract

The development of a thin film technology based on the outstanding organic semiconductor rubrene is seriously prevented by its tendency to solidify in an amorphous state when deposited on foreign substrates. Here, a crystalline thin film of rubrene was successfully grown by vapor deposition on the surface of a tetracene single crystal. Atomic resolution imaging performed with scanning force microscopy revealed the high crystallinity of the film and its unique orientation achieved through a line-on-line epitaxial relation.
