Abstract

STM (scanning tunnelling microscope) observation was conducted on n-paraffin molecules (n-C33H68) adsorbed on a graphite substrate. A series of the STM images could reveal each of the progressive stages of the crystal growth, suggesting how the molecules grow into two-dimensional crystals.
