Intrinsically functional molecules such as single molecule magnets and light-harvesting dyes, are oftentimes too large or fragile to be thermally evaporated onto surfaces in ultra-high vacuum. So to get around this we use electrospray ionisation to produce a plume of molecules from solution and extract it into vacuum to deposit complex molecules on surfaces prepared in ultra-high vacuum. This enables us to use high resolution synchrotron-techniques and scanning probe to study, in-situ, their adsoprtion, electronic structure and charge transfer dynamics on surfaces.
