Momentum dependent investigation of electronic excitations in β-metal-phthalocyanines — •Louis Philip Doctor and Martin Knupfer — Leibniz Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung, Helmholtz Str. 20, 01069 Dresden
This work presents an investigation of the electronic excitations of β-metal-phthalocyanines. We prepared 120 nm thick thin films by physical vapour deposition, which afterwards underwent an annealing process. Infrared spectroscopy revealed that the annealed films were in the β-phase. The films were further characterised in the visible regime. The prominent feature in this regime is the Q-band, which consists of four peaks arising from the HOMO to LUMO transition split by solid-state effects. Furthermore, the dispersion of the Q-band was measured using electron energy loss spectroscopy. We found a complex momentum dependent behaviour. Most interesting is the negative dispersion of the lowest-lying excitation, which also has a tremendous effect on the performance of optoelectronic devices. This redshift partially correlates with the intermolecular distance and the charge carrier transfer integrals. The latter were determined by a theoretical model, which describes the interaction of Frenkel and charge transfer excitons in metal-phthalocyanines. Our results clearly indicate a prominent influence of charge transfer excitons to the lowest electronic excitations.
