A method for forming organic single-crystal arrays from solution is demonstrated using an organic semiconductor, 3,9-bis(4-ethylphenyl)-peri-xanthenoxanthene (C2Ph-PXX). Supersaturation of C2Ph-PXX/tetralin solution is spatially changed by making a large difference in solvent evaporation to generate nuclei at the designated location. The method is simple to implement since it employs only a micropattern and control of the solvent vapor pressure during growth.
