We have implemented a large-scale classical molecular dynamics simulation at constant temperature to provide a theoretical insight into the results of a recently performed experiment on the monolayer and multi-layer formations of C60 molecular films on the Si(100) reconstructed dimerized surface. Our simulation has successfully reproduced all of the morphologies observed on the C60 monolayer film by this experiment. We have obtained the formation of both c(4 × 4) and c(4 × 3) structures of the molecules and have also obtained phase transitions of the former into the latter.
