Inside Front Cover: Nanoscale Surface Morphology and Rectifying Behavior of a Bulk Single-Crystal Organic Semiconductor (Adv. Mater. 12/2006)
Local surface measurements of rubrene single crystals reveal interesting insights on carrier-transport mechanisms at the active interface of high-performance field-effect “air-gap stamp” transistors, as reported by Fichou, Rogers, and co-workers on p. 1552. Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM, tip shown schematically) images, combined with atomic force microscopy and X-ray diffraction, reveal directly the position and orientation of individual molecules in the a–b plane. Local current–voltage curves recorded using STM in the dark and under illumination indicate a rectifying p-type behavior.
