Template synthesis of cyanine dye H-aggregates on nanostructured [6,6]-phenyl C61-butyric acid methyl ester substrates.


A novel and general method for the synthesis of H-aggregates is presented. H-aggregates can be precipitated from solutions of cyanine dyes in nanostructured [6,6]-phenyl C(61)-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) template films. H-aggregates synthesized that way have a narrow line shape width comparable to the smallest H-bands reported for thin films so far. We… (More)
