Abstract

We investigate the morphology of a pentacene (C22H14) film adsorbed on the Cu(119) vicinal surface by scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM). Thermal treatment of a thick film of molecules generates a long-range ordered structure. Series of molecular rows are alternated with areas where the molecules assume two equivalent orientations. STM data analysis suggests that the ordered structure can be described by a rippled morphology. The behaviour of the film at different annealing temperatures suggests a possible explanation of the film structure as due to an adsorbate-induced modification of the substrate
