Abstract

The authors have applied photoemission microspectroscopy to copper phthalocyanine films grown on a graphite surface with a lateral resolution of 0.3 μm and an energy resolution of 30 meV. The photoemission peak due to the highest occupied molecular orbital was found to be at binding energies of 1.13, 1.23, 1.38, and 1.5 eV, depending on film thickness. From the thickness and light-polarization dependence, the peaks were assigned to originate from isolated molecules, the first layer, the second layer, and multilayer, respectively. They demonstrate the capability of photoemission microspectroscopy to resolve electronic states modified by fine differences of molecular environments.
