Abstract
Lattice constant of LB films were controlled by introducing "Spacer Molecul es" such as pyrrole or fullerene into arachidic acid LB films. The appropri ate buffer layers which satisfy lattice matching between the different mono layers were successfully formed. The observation using an atomic force micr oscope clearly showed tl;at the LB films are highly ordered in the lateral direction even after introducing spacer molecules. The spatially controlled LB films were also found to be applied for a novel gas sensor with a molec ular size recognition.
