The first use of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to unambiguously image well-defined organic absorbates on surfaces is reported. Individual organic molecules in a liquid crystal array on a graphite surface were imaged using STM with nearly atomic resolution. A two-dimensional order in 4-n-ocytl-4'-cyanobiphenyl, a smectic in the bulk, is identified, confirming and embellishing models from the literature. Also imaged was 4-(trans-4n-pentylcyclohexyl)benzonitrile, a nematic liquid crystal in the bulk at room temperature. An increase in order in both liquid crystals with respect to their bulk phases is observed. The bulk smectic appears crystalline on the graphite surface, as the smectic planes are perfectly registered with one another. The structure of the bulk nematic at the interface with the surface shows a strong conformity to the graphite substrate. In both cases, the molecular axes lie parallel to the substratum, and the STM images a cross-section along the direction of the molecular axes of the classical bulk phases.
