Abstract

Recently, it has been shown that ordered overlayers of many organic and polymeric materials can be made on specially-prepared ultra-thin films of polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE [1]. We have prepared PTFE films, in the range of 15 to 35 Å in thickness, by a slightly modified version of the hot-dragging method of Pooley and Tabor [2], and studied the electronic structure using ultraviolet and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, UPS and XPS. The electronic structure results are compared with new ab initio quantum chemical electronic structure calculations.
