Abstract

Recently, it has been predicted theoretically and observed experimentally that doping polythiophene to high levels can lead to a metallic-like material. In this work, we investigate the electronic structure of polythiophene and related fused-ring systems by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), looking for the consequences of the gap closure on the core level lineshapes. Valence band spectra of polymers prepared from thiophene and bithiophene are compared.
