Singlet-Triplet Annihilation Limits Exciton Yield in Poly(3-Hexylthiophene) — •Florian Steiner, Jan Vogelsang, and John M. Lupton — Institut für Experimentelle und Angewandte Physik, Universität Regensburg, D- 93040 Regensburg

Unraveling the complex photophysics of multichromophoric systems like conjugated polymers (CPs) is an ongoing interdisciplinary task. Some of the pressing questions in CP photophysics are: (i) what unit absorbs and emits the light in a CP? (ii) What processes take place between the absorption and emission event? And (iii) what is the interplay between excitation energy transfer between chromophores and non-radiative fluorescence decay? Answering these questions will lead to a fundamental understanding of the photophysics of CPs, which in turn can highlight important loss mechanisms regarding the efficiency in CP-based devices, such as self-quenching.

We illustrate that control of size and morphology in combination with several single-molecule techniques leads to a universal picture of the self-quenching mechanism in CPs by addressing these questions. As a model system we chose the device-relevant prototypical CP poly(3-hexylthiophene). Morphological control, combined with well-defined sub-populations of different sizes, enabled us to correlate a diverse set of photophysical observables (brightness, emission polarization, emission spectra, photon antibunching) with each other and the size. Finally, the increasing fluorescence self-quenching with size and morphological order is rationalized with a comprehensive photophysical model.
