Electronic and Optical Properties of Conjugated Polymers

William Barford

Oxford University Press

An experimental survey of the optical properties of linear polyenes and trans-polyacetylene is given, before the concepts of previous chapters are used to develop a theoretical interpretation of them. The key excited states, i.e. the 1Bu singlet and triplet, and the 2Ag singlet are discussed. DMRG calculations of the Pariser-Parr-Pople-Peierls model are used to interpret the data.

Keywords:   linear polyenes, trans-polyacetylene, optical properties, 1Bu singlet, 1Bu triplet, 2Ag singlet, DMRG calculations
