Indium-tin-oxide film (ITO) was fabricated, on a (100) surface of an yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) single crystal by pulsed laser deposition. The ITO film was characterized by atomic force microscopy and X-ray diffraction measurements. ITO grew heteroepitaxially on the YSZ substrate. The ITO film surface was extremely flat and roughness in height was less than 1 nm. Two organic dyes, copper phthalocyanine and vanadyltetraphenylporphyrin, were vacuum-deposited on the ITO substrate. Their molecular orientations in thin film were investigated by transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction analysis.
