Abstract

Application of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), especially for organic molecular systems, has been drawing our attention as a new approach to realizing novel material structures with low dimensionality, which are expected to exhibit important electronic and photonic properties. The following is an outline of our work in progress, including an overview of “nanoscopic” molecular engineering. Future possibilities of fabrication, modification and characterization for organic low-dimensional materials are reviewed with the new concept embraced by “nanoscopic” science and technology.
