Biexcitons in phthalocyanine thin films

Abstract

We investigate both these issues within the context of molecular exciton theory, and perform femtosecond pump-probe experiments to compare with theoretical predictions. Furthermore, we prove the nature of the lowest excited state in metallophthalocyanines, in order to compare to earlier experiments that suggested subgap two-photon states in these systems. It is therefore predicted within the theoretical model that if the ground state absorption in the dimer is to the red of the monomer absorption, excited state absorption should occur on the high energy side of the linear absorption energy.
