Electronic and Optical Properties of Conjugated Polymers

Second Edition

William Barford

International Series of Monographs on Physics

  • Topical monograph on the electronic and optical processes in conjugated polymers
  • Describes how the three key effects of electron-electron interactions, electron-nuclear couping, and disorder determine the type and energies of the electronic states
  • Explains the photo-physical properties of conjugated polymers in terms of the theory of electronic states
  • Includes an up-to-date survey of the experimental and theoretical developments, with a comprehensive literature list
  • Provides numerous technical details (mainly as appendices) as theoretical tools

New to this Edition:

  • Includes a more extended discussion of excitons in conjugated polymers.
  • Includes new chapter on the static and dynamical localization of excitons.
