Highly crystalline organic superlattice has great potential for providing innovative function in organic devices. With studies of the structure and fundamental electronical properties, we have demonstrated the phathalocynine organic superlattice, which is a structure composed of periodically alternating crystalline layers of H2Pc and F16CuPc. A periodical crystal structure and electronic structure appear in this organic superlattice system. High density of mobile electrons and holes distribute periodically in F16CuPc and H2Pc layers, respectively, leading to a significant change in intrinsic properties of organic semiconductors.
