Thin films of pentacene (C22H14) have become widely used in the field of organic electronics. Here films of C22H14 of thickness ranging from submonolayer to multilayer were thermally deposited on Ag(1 1 1) surface. The determination of molecular geometry in pentacene films on Ag(1 1 1) studied by X-ray absorption at different stages of growth up to one monolayer is presented.
