Templating an organic array with Si(111)-7×7

Author affiliations


We demonstrate that nearest neighbor molecular adsorption can be sterically hindered on the Si(111)-7×7 surface reconstruction. This breaks the energetic equivalence of corner and edge di-σ attachment geometries and allows a translationally ordered organic layer to be templated directly on the 7×7 reconstruction.
