The effect of illumination on the thickness and roughness of monolayers of polycationic molecules of polyethyleneimine deposited from solution onto a silicon substrate was discovered and investigated. The super-bandgap illumination of the substrate during polyethyleneimine adsorption causes a decrease in both the roughness and integral thickness of the organic layer on n- and p-Si substrates.
