Abstract

One of the goals of nanoscience is achieving precise control over the structure and function of nanoscale architectures at surfaces. Bottom-up approaches using molecular building blocks present a flexible and intuitive approach to this challenge. Combining the Lego-like modularity of molecules with the expitaxial and reactive influences of surfaces creates a range of opportunities to build exciting new nano-architectures, which potentially have interesting and/or useful electronic properties. I will provide an overview of our recent work in developing an inverse photoelectron spectrometer optimised for use on organic materials. This instrument, in combination with ultraviolet photoelectron spectrometry, allows us to measure all relevant energy levels in our organic materials.
