Electronic structure and optical properties of P3HT - Evidence of 2D-polarons in P3HT — •Matthias Richter and Dieter Schmeißer — Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus, Applied Physics and Sensors, K.-Wachsmann-Allee 17, 03046 Cottbus, Germany

In this contribution we report on investigations of the electronic structure and optical characteristics of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) based films. Various techniques like NEXAFS, SRXPS, UPS, UV-VIS and FTIR were used. X-Ray based measurements were done at the U49/2-PGM2 beam line at BESSYII. The samples were produced by spin casting P3HT dissolved in chloroform and other suitable solvents on ITO (indium tin oxide) coated glass slides and silicon substrates. Regioregular-P3HT is known to form thin films with nanocrystalline lamellae. This 2D structure give rise to additional electronic excitations in photoinduced absorption measurements, which are attributed to 2D-polarons [1]. In the Total Electron Yield (surface sensitive) and Total Fluorescence Yield (bulk sensitive) NEXAFS spectra of regioregular-P3HT three additional features can be found prior to the first typical π* excitation. The nature of these features was further investigated by means of SRXPS and UPS measurements. Energy differences relative to π*-peak maximum (0.54eV, 0.87eV and 2.24eV) suggest that these features are due to 2D-polarons. This presence of polarons is further confirmed by our FTIR and UV-VIS results. [1] Osterbacka et al., Synth. Met. 116 (2001) 317
