    Abstract:

    Crystalline films of small conjugated molecules offer attractive potential for fabricating organic solar cells, organic light emitting diodes (LED), and organic field effect transistors (OFETs) on flexible substrates. Here, the novel two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals materials like conducting graphene (Gr) or insulating ultrathin hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) come into play. Gr, for instance, offers potential application as a transparent conductive electrode in organic solar cells and LEDs replacing indium tin oxide, whereas hBN can be used as a ultrathin flexible dielectric in OFETs.
    We report on the self-assembly of crystalline needles composed of rod-like molecules on exfoliated, wrinkle-free Gr and hBN, both transferred onto SiO2. The needles are several 10 nm wide and a few nm high, they can extend to several 10 Ám in length. The discrete needle directions with respect to armchair and zigzag directions of the substrates were determined by atomic-force microscopy (AFM).
    Through in-situ measurements during molecule deposition on Gr in field-effect transistor device geometries, the charge transfer at the interface was directly probed. The amount of charge transferred per adsorbed molecule is only about one thousandth of an electron transferred per molecule. Further, electrostatic force microscopy (EFM) based charging and charge spreading experiments demonstrate the optoelectronic properties of the organic nanoneedles.
