Electronic and Optical Properties of Conjugated Polymers

Oxford University Press

The theory of linear and non-linear optical processes in conjugated polymers is introduced. In particular, the Condon approximation, Franck-Condon factors, and exciton model are all used to develop expressions for transition dipole moments between the electronic states. The non-linear processes of two-photon absorption and electroabsorption are discussed within the context of the essentials states mechanism.The chapter concludes with a discussion of photo-physical processes via a Jablonski diagram.

Keywords:   linear optical processes, Condon approximation, Franck-Condon factors, transition dipole moments, two-photon absorption, electroabsorption, essentials states mechanism, Jablonski diagram
