Self-assembly of organic molecules can facilitate the efficient production of highly-ordered architectures1 on the molecular scale which have a wide range of applications in new materials and electronics. Thorough investigation of such surface assemblies requires microscopic methods, which are time-consuming and highly dependent upon pristine operating conditions. Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) provides rapid, surfacesensitive chemical analysis that greatly increases the efficiency of surface studies, including those of molecular assemblies. 5,6,7-trithiapentacene-13-one (TTPO), a novel pentacene derivative synthesized by UNH Miller Group, is examined on vicinal Au(788) by AES to compliment scanning tunneling microscopy study
