Electronic Excitations in Pentacene Films: Singlet versus Triplet Dynamics

  • Henning Marciniak

Polarization dependent femtosecond spectroscopy shows that photoexcited excitons in microcrystalline pentacene films decay within 70 fs to a non fluorescing singlet species. On the picosecond time scale, a small fraction of triplet excitons forms.
