The fluorescence of single chains of the conductive polymer poly[2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylene vinylene] (MEH-PPV) was studied by means of single-molecule spectroscopy at 15 K. MEH-PPV was deposited onto a surface from a toluene solution and covered with a polymer cap layer of poly(vinyl alcohol) spin-coated from an aqueous solution for… CONTINUE READING
