Insight into the unit cell: Structure of picene thin films on Ag(100) revealed with complementary methods.


PMID 27825207

Abstract

We study the molecular structure of one monolayer of picene on a Ag(100) surface. Low energy electron diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy experiments show that the molecules arrange in a highly ordered manner exhibiting a point-on-line epitaxy with two differently arranged molecules per unit cell. Comparing measured and simulated photoelectron momentum maps allows further conclusions about the composition of the unit cell. The structural basis consists of two parallel molecules; one molecule lies face-on and the other is tilted by ≈45° around its long axis with respect to the surface normal.
