Abstract
Crystallographic Image Processing (CIP) is applied to experimental Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) images of regular (2D periodic) arrays of organic molecules on noble metal substrates. The crystallographically averaged (surface) lattices, structural motifs, and plane symmetry groups of the arrays are determined. An assessment of the samples with the goal of utilizing highly symmetric molecular arrays as calibration samples for STM is made. A brief introduction to the CIP procedures is given in an appendix.
