1 nA) showing the faceted structure of p-aminobenzoic acid on Cu(1 1 0). (Reprinted with permission from Ref. [47]. ) Cu{0 0 1} [49–52]. In the case of the achiral glycine molecule, a tendency was found for the formation of (3 1 17) facets. Since there is neither rotational nor reflectional symmetry within individual facets, eight symmetry-related facets should be expected, that is, (1 3 17), (1 3 À17), (3 À1 17), (À3 1 17), (3 1 17), (3 1 À17), (À1 3 17), and (1 À3 17) The first four facets are rotationally equivalent to each other as are the final four.

Indeed, this leads to a template-controlled growth without specific interaction but by spatially confining the movement of the deposited particles. The nucleation is then homogeneous but controlled by the template. This approach is quite similar to the one used in lithography where the spatial confinement is provided by the lithographically produced pattern on the surface. Since surface diffusion in this case is the crucial parameter, the process will be subject to the same limitations in terms of temperature as in the case of template-controlled heterogeneous nucleation.
