Abstract

We have investigated interfacial structure and ultrafast charge transfer dynamics at the interface between highly structured oligothiophene films and Au(111) and Cu (111). The frontier orbitals at these interfaces play an important role in charge transfer processes in organic photovoltaic devices. We observe the evolution of electronic structure in both HOMO and LUMO as a function of interface thickness and structure, and correlate this information with device performance. In addition, we observe ultrafast dynamics of electronic states formed at these interfaces and discuss the implications for charge injection dynamics in organic photovoltaics.
