Exciton transport and interaction in molecular aggregates and polymers are key processes in solar light harvesting and organic electronics. While the initial dynamics following photoexcitation proceeds in a delocalized, wavelike fashion, the subsequent exciton transport has diffusive character. In this work we use our newly-developed exciton-exciton interaction two-dimensional (EEI2D) spectroscopy [1], in combination with microscopic theoretical modelling, to study exciton dynamics and annihilation in squaraine copolymers of varying length [2]. By directly probing interacting exciton pairs, we observe the transition from wavelike to diffusive exciton motion, dependent on the exciton delocalization length relative to the polymer size. Contrary to the common assumption, we find that the exciton diffusion has anomalous, sub-diffusive character, indicating trapped excitons. Our results demonstrate the potential of high-order spectroscopy, such as EEI2D, to provide new insights into exciton transport and interaction.
