Dynamics of optically excited electrons in the conducting polymer PEDT:PSS



Femtosecond time-resolved two-photon photoemission spectroscopy is employed to study the dynamics of the non-equilibrium electron distribution in the conducting polymer poly(3,4-ethylene-dioxythiophene): poly-(styrenesulfonate) (PEDT:PSS) film following optical excitation at 2.1 eV. We found that the electron thermalization occurs on a ultrafast timescale of around 60 fs analogous to the relaxation times of optically excited electrons in Au(111).
