Submonolayer of DPDI Submonolayer of DPDI (4,9-diaminoperylene-quinone-3,10-diimine, a Perylen derivate) on Cu(111) surface. Under the influence of heat (300°C) a hexagonal network of Perylen-derivatives (DPDI) is formed. The emerging holes can be used to catch other molecules - here C60-molecules. (Picture: Meike Stöhr)
