Paper Abstract

We report the photoluminescence spectrum of well characterized, epitaxially grown single crystal C60 thin films. The highly regular and reproducible spectral features observed can be explained by a simple molecular model which takes into account enhanced coupling of an excited C60 molecule with its nearest neighbor. This model provides an identification of all the observed spectral features at low temperature including a qualitative understanding of the relative peak height ratios, as well as the observed temperature dependence of the PL spectrum.
