Unraveling the favorable electronic interaction between dopant and polymer is the key to the success of molecular doping in organic semiconductors. Here we use two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy to explore the electronic dynamics of F4TCNQ-doped conducting polymer, P3HT in precursor solution mixtures. The electronic interactions among the ion-pairs formed in precursor solutions are captured in the form of off-diagonal peaks connecting the electronic states of polymer and dopant radicals. We have theoretically modeled our system to simulate the experimental data and achieve a quantitative picture of the Coulombic interaction between cation and anion radicals in solution. Our study reveals the heterogeneous electronic interactions that possibly serve as a seed for the structures in the spin-casted films.
