Triplet states of the nonlinear optical chromophore DCM in single crystals of potassium hydrogen phthalate and their relationship to single-molecule dark states.

Abstract

Single-molecule dark states are often attributed to photoexcited triplets with scant evidence of the participation of paramagnetic molecules. The photodynamics of blinking single molecules of 4-dicyanomethylene-2-methyl-6-p-dimethylaminostyryl-4H-pyran (DCM) in crystals of potassium hydrogen phthalate (KAP) were compared with the lifetimes of DCM triplet… (More)
