Theoretical Analysis of the Vibrational Spectra of Conducting Polymers : A Model Compound Approach

  • S. Lefrant
  • J. P. Buisson


Since the emergence of conducting polymers in the last two decades, both fundamental and applied research have been developped extensively either to discover new materials or to improve their properties1. As a matter of fact, the possibilities of technological applications have drastically increased in various domains2,3, due in particular to the fact that soluble4,5 and conducting polymers are nowadays available. It remains that electronic or transport properties of such materials are still under investigation in many cases by means of different classical or sophisticated techniques.
