Langmuir molecular monolayers of a unique tetraazapentacene zwitterionic amphiphile were found to form stripe-like domains that responded strongly to an applied magnetic field. These stripe domains were transferred as Langmuir−Blodgett (LB) films to glass substrates, where they were structurally characterized using five complementary imaging techniques, including scanning second-harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy and capacitance force microscopy. The molecular orientations of adjacent single striped domains of a tetraazapentacene monolayer were determined by SHG polarization measurements. Those structures were shown to be consistent across the various imaging techniques.
