We employ low-temperature single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy on a ladder-type oligo(para-phenylene) with two chemical repeat units, constituting a model system for a chromophore on a conjugated polymer. The oligomer spectra are compared to those of single chromophores of the corresponding ladder-type polymer with ≈ 80 repeat units. The profile of the electronic spectra of both single oligomers and polymers feature a narrow line with a width of 1 - 80 cm−1 (FWHM) that we attribute to the purely electronic transition (zero-phonon line, ZPL). For the oligomer the ZPL is accompanied by a weaker line at lower energy (≈ 150 cm−1) that is ascribed to an intra-molecular backbone stretch mode coupling to the electronic transition. For the polymer, in contrast, this vibration is not detectable. Instead we identified a shoulder in the low-energy tail of the ZPL that arises from phonon modes of the surrounding matrix (mean phonon energy: ≈ 20 cm−1). For both systems the electron-phonon coupling strength to these low-energy (< 200 cm−1) vibrational modes is weak with a Debye-Waller factor > 0.2.
