Paper Abstract

The possibility to control the energetic properties of the molecules before their deposition can be a great advantage in the growth of ordered films of organic materials. To this end we have developed a new deposition method based on supersonic molecular beam. With this method the kinetic energy, the momentum and the internal energy can be controlled varying the properties of the supersonic expansion. Very interesting results are achieved with oligothiophene where the thin flims several hundred on nm thick grown with this method show optical, morphological and structural characteristics similar to the single crystal. Supersonic molecular beam deposition (SuMBE) is therefore proposed as an interesting method to study and to improve the performance of organic based devices.
