Organic Nanowires

Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskning


Single crystalline nanowires from fluorescing organic molecules like para-phenylenes
or thiophenes are supposed to become key elements in future integrated optoelectronic
devices [1]. For a sophisticated design of devices based on nanowires
the basic principles of the nanowire formation have to be well understood [2].
Nanowires from para-phenylenes, from ®-thiophenes, and from phenylene/thiophene
co-oligomers, Fig. 1, are investigated exemplarily. Epitaxy and electrostatic
interactions determine the microscopic growth mechanism, whereas kinetics ascertains
the macroscopic habit. Results from atomic force microscopy and from
polarized far-field optical microscopy for various prototypical molecules are reproduced
by electrostatic and Monte Carlo calculations. Based on the crystal
structure, predictions on the growth habit from other conjugated molecules become
in reach.
