A new approach, molecular layer epitaxy (MLE), is introduced for the vapor-phase assembly of organic multilayers integrated in molecular electronic devices. The MLE approach uses carrier gas assisted epitaxial deposition, covalent bonding, and horizontal π stacking in a pulsed mode for layer-by-layer growth of 1,8:4,5-naphthalenetetracarbodiimide with a hexamethylene spacer (shown schematically).
