Local Trapping Centers for Excitons in Molecular Crystals

  • Edgar A. Silinsh
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 16)


The neutral excited state energy Eμ (k) [cf. Sect.2.1] is determined by the topology of molecules in the crystal, since both dispersional (D) and resonance [ μ (k)] interaction depend on the distance R between the excited molecule and the surrounding molecules of the lattice. Hence, the terms D and μ (k) will be unequivocally set only for a perfect crystal, and only in this case will the exciton bands be strictly fixed and equal for the whole crystal.
