Excited State Interaction and Energy Transfer Between Molecules in Organic Crystals — Basic Experimental Methods and Results

  • H. C. Wolf
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 49)

Abstract

One of the most interesting aspects of the physics and chemistry of organic molecular crystals is their ability to transfer energy which is absorbed at one specific site of the crystal to some other place where this energy is used for inducing processes which need energy: sensitized luminescence, charge carrier release, induction of photochemical reactions and others. In the past, many different experimental methods have been used to study such energy transfer processes. In my introductory talk, I want to give a survey of these methods or at least several of them, discuss their possibilities and try to give some ideas for future work.
