Localization lengths of the electronic states in a disordered two-dimensional system, resembling highly anisotropic molecular crystals such as pentacene, have been calculated numerically using the transfer matrix method. The disorder is based on a model with small random fluctuations of induced molecular dipole moments which give rise to long-range correlated disorder in the on-site energies as well as a coupling between the on-site energies and the intermolecular interactions. Our calculations show that molecular crystals such as pentacene can exhibit states with very long localization lengths with a possibility to reach a truly metallic state. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
