Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Photoinduced absorption spectroscopy is used to study the intersystem crossing in a blend consisting of the fluorene-based conjugated polymers poly(9,9'-dioctylfluorene-co-benzothiadiazole) (F8BT) and poly(9,9'-dioctylfluorene-co-bis-N,N'-(4-butylphenyl)-bis-N,N'-phenyl-1,4-phenylene-diamine) (PFB). The intersystem crossing efficiency is found to be ~10 times higher in F8BT:PFB than in F8BT alone. We attribute this effect to enhanced increased intersystem crossing in the charge-separated states formed at the polymer/polymer heterojunctions in the blend. Applying an electric field dissociates these states and thus reduces the rate of triplet state formation. We also perform time-dependent density functional theory quantum chemical calculations to determine the T1?Tn absorption cross section and to estimate the triplet yield.
