Abstract

A study to investigate the dynamic scaling, island size distribution, and morphology in the aggregation regime of submonolayer pentacene films is presented. The scaling behavior of the island size distribution through a universal scaling function f(u) is demonstrated. The distribution of f(u) indicates that four molecules constitute the smallest stable island. The structure factor when decomposed into the contribution from the average island shape and the interisland distribution confirms that a unique characteristic length scale regulates the growth dynamics.
