Excitations in organic solids by Vladimir M. Agranovich, Gerard Czajkowski

By Vladimir M. Agranovich, Gerard Czajkowski

Over the last decade our services in nanotechnology has complex significantly. the potential of incorporating within the comparable nanostructure various natural and inorganic fabrics has spread out a promising box of study, and has significantly elevated the curiosity within the research of homes of excitations in natural fabrics. during this e-book not just the basics of Frenkel exciton and polariton conception are defined, but in addition the digital excitations and digital strength transfers in quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots, at surfaces, at interfaces, in skinny motion pictures, in multilayers, and in microcavities. one of the new subject matters within the publication are these dedicated to the optics of hybrid Frenkel-Wannier-Mott excitons in nanostructures, polaritons in natural microcavities together with hybrid organic-inorganic microcavities, new suggestions for natural gentle emitting units, the blending of Frenkel and charge-transfer excitons in natural quasi one-dimensional crystals, excitons and polaritons in a single and two-dimensional crystals, floor digital excitations, optical biphonons, and Fermi resonances by way of polaritons. All new phenomena defined within the publication are illustrated by means of on hand experimental observations. The ebook could be helpful for scientists operating within the box of photophysics and photochemistry of natural solids (for instance, natural light-emitting units and sunlight cells), and for college kids who're getting into this box. it really is partially according to a booklet by means of the writer written in 1968 - "Theory of Excitons" - in Russian. but the new e-book contains in basic terms five chapters from this model, all of which were up-to-date. the ten new chapters include discussions of latest phenomena, their concept and their experimental observations.

Example text

As a second example consider the case of a quartz crystal, with the space group D3 . One of the representations of the point group D3 has dimension two. Thus, if the vector k0 is parallel to the three-fold symmetry axis when the point ˆ k coincides with the point group D3 , a double degeneracy of excitonic group G 0 terms is, in general, possible. There is another reason for degeneracy of excitonic states, being a consequence of the structure of the Schr¨ odinger equation. Indeed, since the Hamiltonian is a self-conjugated operator, wavefunctions Ψ∗k0 μ ( = 1, 2, .

Although the crystal is topologically a three-dimensional network, for the energy transfer by triplet excitons and trapping, the crystal behaves as a set of linear chains. 4 cm−1 for the zero–zero transition. A symmetric mode at 0+520 cm−1 was shown to have an exciton bandwidth of 15 cm−1 , and an asymmetric vibrational level at 0+250 cm−1 was shown to have a vanishing bandwidth. To become more acquainted with the experimental and the theoretical results on the triplet excitons one can suggest the papers by McConnell and coworkers (26)–(30) and the review articles by Grescishkin and Ajbinder (37).

A quite analogous role of the medium polarization can be discussed in the case of more complex crystals, where the unit cell contains more than one molecule. We consider, as an example, the case of two molecules in the unit cell. e. the frequencies arising due to the Davydov splitting. 53) where 2 a= 8π (sP0;01 ) ω ˜ 1 (0), 0 Δ ij si sj 2 b= 8π (sP0;02 ) ω ˜ 2 (0) . 53) give, in particular, the Davydov splitting for Coulomb excitons ω1 (s) − ω2 (s) ω1 (s) − ω2 (s) = 1 2ωf 2 [˜ ω12 (0) − ω ˜ 22 (0) + a − b] + 4ab.
