Engineering, stability and orientation of semiconducting molecules are necessary to achieve the high efficiency of multifunctional organic-based devices. Several conjugated molecules facilitate the use of external magnetic fields to tailor both their molecular orientation and electronic properties while being processed for bio or opto-electronic applications. In this work, molecular thin films of vanadyl phthalocynine (VOPc) layers forming conducting channels in organic field-effect transistors were investigated. Three systems based on 100 nm thick VOPc thin film were grown, one in absence of magnetic field, while the other two with parallel and perpendicular to the substrate plane, respectively. Devices were ex-situ investigated by electrical characterization and confocal scanning Raman spectroscopy (SRS). All molecular layers growth on Au electrodes presented enhancement of the Raman signal.
