Paper Abstract

Phthalocyanine films have been synthesized by vapor deposition on quartz substrates. Some substrates were coated with a very thin gold film for introducing electrical fie.d These films have been characterized by x-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. The films have excellent chemical and optical stability. However, the surface of these films grown without electrical field shows whisk-like morphology. When films are deposited under an electrical field, a dense film with flat surface is obtained. A change of film in growth orientations and solid state phase is also observed for the film synthesized under electrical fields.
