Photophysical properties of fullerene-oligothiophene-fullerene (C 60 -nT-C 60 ) triads with n = 3, 6, or 9 thiophene units have been investigated using photoinduced absorption (PIA) and (time-resolved) fluorescence spectroscopy in toluene and compared to mixtures of oligothiophenes (nT) with N-methylfulleropyrrolidine (MP-C 60 ). Photoexcitation of the oligothiophene moiety of the C 60 -nT-C 60 triads in toluene results in a very fast singlet-energy transfer reaction to the fullerene moiety… CONTINUE READING
