Device performances in organic electronics are strongly influenced by structure and morphology of the active layer. We investigated thin film of diindenoperylene deposited on gold single crystals with various lattice geometries.

The results show the influence of the surface lattice geometry of the substrate that affects the shape of the islands. This behavior mimics very closely the behavior of atoms on metal growth, showing a general pattern in matter organization at the nanoscale regime.
