抄録

Frequency modulation atomic force microscopy (FM-AFM) was employed to study molecular structures of rubrene single crystals in ultrahigh vacuum. Molecularly flat and extraordinarily wide terraces were extended over the width of more than a few micrometers with monomolecular steps. Molecular packing arrangements and internal structures were revealed by FM-AFM. The unit cell determined by FM-AFM was consistent with the lattice parameters of bulk crystal within the experimental error, suggesting that the surface structure of rubrene is not reconstructed.
