Paper Abstract

In the present study, high quality rubrene thin film is fabricated through control of growth time with thermally evaporation under vacuum. Optical microscopy is employed to analyze the surface morphology of the samples. A mode of thin film growth from an amorphous continuous film to polycrystalline rubrene thin film could be controlled by growth time. Images of such structures [acquired using optical microscopy] show that they are polycrystalline structure, which splays out from a central point. Rubrene thin film is linear structure when the growth time is greater than 7 hours. Meanwhile, the optical constant (absorption coefficient (α)) is analyzed by transmission and absorption spectrum. The optical band gap (Eg) is deduced by Tauc formula. From the ultraviolet absorption spectrum of rubrene thin film, we observe two shape peaks, which can be explained by Davydov splitting (factor-group splitting).
