Abstract [en]

Single chains of the conjugated polymer MEH-PPV (poly(2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene)) were studied with wide-field fluorescence microscopy (dispersion in inert polymer matrices) and with fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (chloroform solution). The fluorescence yield of individual molecules in matrices was found to be 1-2 orders of magnitude lower than that in solution and it decreased substantially with increasing chain length. It suggests that isolation of MEH-PPV molecules in polymer matrices creates favorable conditions for photogeneration of nonemissive primary excited states.
