Abstract
We report the results of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) investigation of a controllable growth of C60 adsorption on the Bi(0001)/Si(111) surface. Using UHV STM it has been shown that the most favorable sites for initial stage of C60 adsorption are the double steps and domain boundaries. At \sim 1 monolayer of C60 coverage the modulation pattern caused by epitaxial relation between C60 and Bi unit cells has been observed. Increasing of C60 coverage up to several monolayers results in the formation of highly crystalline molecular film.
