"Pi-Conjugated Organometallic Oligomers and Polymers: Triplet Exciton Structure, Dynamics and Materials Applications"

Presented by Dr. Kirk Schanze, University of Florida

Friday, January 5, 2007, 11:00 am — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

A series of Platinum-Acetylide oligomers and polymers have been investigated with the objective of understanding the structure and dynamics of triplet excitons in pi-conjugated electronic systems. Photophysical investigations provide clear evidence that the triplet exciton is localized in conjugated systems. Moreover, the dynamics of intrachain diffusion can studied at temperatures below 200 K. Platinum-acetylide materials also find use in applications ranging from organic photovoltaic cells to optical pulse limiting.
