Abstract

We study physical properties of photogenerated electron-lattice coupled states, polarons, in one-dimensional (1D) Peierls-Hubbard model with classical lattice distortion by means of the density matrix renormalization group method. The numerical results show novel midgap peaks in optical response spectra of polarons for large on-site Coulomb interaction U. These midgap peaks originate from charge-transfer excitations within the dimer in polarons.
