Excitations in Organic Solids

Vladimir Agranovich


This book details the studies of the properties of electronic and vibrational excitations in organic solids. It brings together most of the theory in this field together with many illustrations of experiments. There is a detailed treatment of many topics in uniform style, and the book also contains discussions of new phenomena. In different chapters, the theory of the Frenkel excitons, charge transfer excitons and polaritons, and their contribution to the optical properties of organic solids (bulk, superlattices, surfaces, nanostructures) will be found. The surface electronic excitations, opti ... More

Keywords: Frenkel/Wannier-Mott excitons, biphonons, polaritons, nanostructures, superlattices, surface electronic excitations, Fermi resonance, charge transfer excitons, second quantization, microcavities
