The first systematic study of anomalous diffusion in nanoscale deposition processes is presented. Thus, the experimental and analysis tools in the manuscript can be utilized to study general diffusion processes for organic molecules on solid surfaces. From a practical point of view, this result demonstrates that after proper considerations, nanoscale direct deposition methods can be utilized to generate organic molecular patterns for very weak-binding cases.
