Photo Effects, Space Charges and Energy Level Diagrams for Organic Solids

  • L. E. Lyons

Abstract

This paper discusses one-photon induced separation of charges in condensed states of organic materials. Fundamental to the discussion is the energy level diagram not only for those states which can be related to the electronic states of the isolated neutral molecule but also for those states in which charged molecular species exist.
