Influence of Dynamics of Melamine with Au ad-Atom on the Au(111) Surface on Self Assembled Structures: Bright Spots
In the previous chapters we analysed the self-assembly process due mainly to the combination of molecule-molecule and molecule-surface interactions. It is clear from the previous chapter that for flat organic molecules deposited on the Au(111) surface the dispersion interaction plays a crucial role in the binding of the molecules to the surface, but this interaction does not affect the corrugation of the surface potential which remainsvery small. This suggests that molecules during their deposition at room temperature cannot easily escape from the surface, but they can freely move around the surface.
