While long-theorized, the direct observation of multiple highly dispersive C60 valence bands has eluded researchers for more than two decades due to a variety of intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Here we report a realization of multiple highly dispersive (330-520 meV) valence bands in pure thin film C60 on a novel substrate - the three…

Signatures of an atomic crystal in the band structure of a C60 thin film
Transport phenomena in molecular materials are intrinsically linked to the orbital character and the degree of localization of the valence states. Here, we combine angle-resolved photoemission with
High sensitive gas sensor based on vertical graphene field effect transistor
A gas sensor made from graphene vertical field effect transistor (VGr-FET) has been fabricated by using graphene as source electrode, C60 thin film as semiconductor layer and aluminum thinFilm as drain electrode and shows promise for early diagnose of severe human respiratory diseases.
Molecular Semiconductors for Logic Operations: Dead‐End or Bright Future?
This critical review addresses the community of chemists and materials scientists to share with it a critical analysis of the best performing molecular semiconductors and of the inherent charge transport physics that takes place in them.
Imaging the Dynamics of Charge Transfer and Frenkel Excitons in Molecular Thin Films
Using time- and momentum-resolved photoemission, we investigated the formation and ultrafast relaxation process of excitons in molecular materials. We uncovered stepwise transitions between charge


Band dispersion in C60(111): An angle-resolved photoemission study.
Angle-resolved photoemission studies of single-crystal C[sub 60](111) films grown on GeS(001) reveal changes in valence feature line shape with emission angle and photon energy that are indicative of
Electron excitations in solid C60: Energy gap, band dispersions, and effects of orientational disorder.
Calculated angle-resolved, inverse photoemission spectra for the LUMO bands show very little angular dependence, explaining recent experimental work on epitaxial thin films.
Electronic properties of K-doped C60(111): Photoemission and electron correlation.
High-resolution photoemission provides the signatures of K 3 C 60 (111), K 4 C 60 , K 6 C 60 , and the dilute solid solution of K in C 60 (111), showing the effects of electron-electron correlation
Evidence for bandlike dispersion in K6C60(110) films
110 films at 40 K survive inspite of the strong electron-phonon coupling expected in fullerides that should give rise to polaron formation.The momentum dependence and the total bandwidth of the
First-principles calculation of optical properties of C60 in the fcc lattice.
It is shown that C{sub 60} has a low dielectric constant and an optical spectrum rich in structures; this is drastically different from diamond and graphite.
Growth mode and electronic structure of the epitaxial C60(111)/GeS(001) interface.
The characteristic spectral features of ${\mathrm{C}}_{60}$ observed in the UPS spectra for bulk fullerite are slightly broadened and shifted to lower binding energies at submonolayer coverages and show no direct evidence for significant hybridization, indicating that the £C-substrate interaction is mainly dominated by van der Waals bonding.
Band Structure and Fermi Surface of Electron-Doped C60 Monolayers
C60 fullerides are challenging systems because both the electron-phonon and electron-electron interactions are large on the energy scale of the expected narrow band width. We report angle-resolved
