Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) We present a simulation of exciton dynamics in supramolecular assemblies of an oligo-p-phenylenevinylene derivative monofunctionalised with a quadruple hydrogen-bonding group (MOPV). MOPV molecules form helical stacks in dodecane solution through solvophobic and p-p interactions with thermotropic reversibility. We apply a model of incoherent excitation hopping using a Monte Carlo scheme to extract microscopic physical quantities relevant to energy diffusion and bimolecular annihilation processes within isolated nanostructures. We compare the simulation to ultrafast spectroscopic data, namely photoinduced absorption transients at various excitation fluences, their polarization anisotropy, and the dynamic photoluminescence red-shift. We observe that energy diffusion and bimolecular annihilation processes can be described with the same microscopic model based on a Förster-like model that takes into account the spatial extent of the excited state; these two processes are interconnected via the same underlying physics. We extract a high diffusion coefficient (0.08 cm2 s-1) over the first few picoseconds following excitation, which plays an important role in dictating the bimolecular annihilation dynamics.
