A detailed investigation of the chemistry and electronic structure during the formation of the interfaces between thin films of the archetypal organic molecular semiconductor copper phthalocyanine (CuPc) and Ag or Sn deposited on it was performed using photoemission and near-edge X-ray absorption spectroscopies with synchrotron light. Our study demonstrates the formation of sharp, abrupt interfaces, a behavior which is of particular importance for applications in organic devices. Moreover, for Ag on CuPc we demonstrate that this interface is free from any reaction, whereas there is slight interface reaction for Sn/CuPc.
