The properties of org. electronic materials in the solid-state are detd. not only by those of individual mols. but also by those of ensembles of mols. The ability to control the architectures of these ensembles is thus essential for optimizing the properties of conjugated materials for use in electronic devices (light emitting diodes, field effect transistors, solar cells, ...) and is primordial for potential technol. applications in nanoelectronics. Here, we report on the observation by at. force microscopy (AFM) of 1D and 2D nanoscale architectures obtained in the solid-state from solns. of molecularly-dissolved conjugated block copolymers or oligomers, and demonstrate that the conjugated mols. can organize onto a surface over lengthscales from nanometers to several microns, forming semiconducting fibrils by p-stacking processes
