Abstract

The current work is dedicated to investigation of the interaction between self-assembled polar molecules of fullerene fluoride C60F18 with the chemically active surface Ni(100) under radiation and heat treatments. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy is used in combination with quantum-chemical simulation. For the first time, the transformation of an as-deposited dielectric continuous 2D thin film to a 3D island-type assembly with molecular ordering within the islands is shown to take place. The degree of coverage of the Ni surface by C60F18 islands (0.6–0.7) and their height (~6 nm) are estimated. Quantum-chemical simulation shows that the chemisorption energy of the C60F18 molecule on the Ni surface equals ~6.6 eV and fluorine atoms are located at a distance of 1.9 Å above the Ni surface. The results of the investigation provide an opportunity to create nanoscale ordered structures with local changes in the work function.
