Conventional vacuum deposition onto a substrate coated with a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) was used to produce arrays of hemispherical nanostructures composed of organic semiconducting materials with low molecular weight. The nanostructures had a minimum diameter of 40 nm, indicating that cluster formation occurred in the gas phase during vacuum deposition. The size and shape of the nanostructures were controlled by the underlying SAMs, organic semiconducting materials, film thickness and substrate temperature.
